From theindychannel.com and Indiana PTA joins discussion over Common Core standards, pushing for implementation:
"Indiana PTA says some school districts have already spent two years planning and making purchasing decisions based on the implementation of Common Core, and it's too late to turn back now.
"Let's follow through with what we've started and let's see how it plays out, instead of switching mid-stream and causing the school systems to have to go out and spend even more money to switch curriculum again," said Sharon Wise, president of Indiana PTA, which represents 24,000 parents and students."
The National PTA has received over $1 Million from Bill Gates to push CCSS. This line of "we've already spent money and time in teacher training" was used in the latest DESE video from the principal Beth Houf.
We then have this talking point from siliconvalleycf.org on twitter:
Parents need time with educators so they can support the implementation of Common Core Standards and so they can help their children succeed
