Kentucky Department of Education seeking still more feedback on the state’s Common Core-based math and English language arts standards
In an interesting surprise, the Kentucky Department of Education has started yet another public comment period on revisions to the state’s education standards for math and English language arts (reading and writing). This new comment period is announced in NEWS RELEASE No. 17-173, which currently is only available to e-mail subscribers but shortly should appear here. The department indicates the need for a new comment period was triggered by concerns regarding the format of the earlier comment period (a format I criticized as biased at the time).
Now, the department says:
“To ensure transition-readiness for all for all students, KDE is seeking further public input regarding the cumulative grade-to-grade progression of K-12 ELA standards at the elementary, middle and high school levels and the cumulative math standards as they are organized by domains, which are larger groups of related standards.”
But, is the new survey format any better than the one from the earlier survey I criticized back in May?
