Something to ponder: “Here’s what the Common Core is designed to communicate: If your children are meeting the standards, it means they are believed to be on track for college and career readiness by the end of high school – real readiness, the kind that doesn’t require remediation on campus. If they aren’t meeting the standards, it means that they are off track. That doesn’t mean they are ‘failing,’ or even ‘below average.’ But it does mean they need to accelerate their progress if they are likely to be able to take bona fide college courses upon entry or have the best possible shot at a well-paying job.” Michael Petrilli in “Not Meeting Standards: A Warning Light, Not a Death Sentence” in The Education Gadfly, March 25, 2015, http://bit.ly/1CoIiciApril Cougar Cafe menu- click here.
Grades 7/8 Track begins on Monday, April 6th- 3:00-4:30 at HUMS.
