Common Core moves continue in Manchester, Nashua
The Manchester Board of School Committee voted nearly unanimously Wednesday to develop "Manchester Academic Standards" that would make us of the Common Core State Standards, but only as a foundation for a district-wide overhaul of the curriculum, which would draw from multiple sources.
The Manchester district was poised to move forward with curriculum guides developed over the summer to align its curriculum with Common Core. The district paid a Boston-based consulting company $84,000 to assist in the process.
Ben Dick, the president of the city teachers union, said the new proposal has "the potential to be something great."
Banfield of Cornerstone Action said that she and others would be watching closely to ensure that Manchester develops a genuine alternative to Common Core and not the same standards by another name.
