Description of the Webinar:
Depending on who is talking, the Common Core State Standards have been called everything from the needed fix to the wrong course for public education in New Jersey. The instructional standards in language arts and math, which are now in place in New Jersey and started to guide schools three years ago, will hit the prime time this year with the state’s first testing wholly aligned to the Common Core.
But for all the debate, what exactly are the standards, what has changed for New Jersey schools, and what are the changes to come?
This NJ Spotlight webinar will help answer those questions, with the state Department of Education’s Chief Academic Officer, Kimberley Harrington, and an educator in the field who is well-versed on what lies ahead, Lodi principal Emil Carafa.
