Acadiana School Superintendents Comment On Common Core

The Acadiana Press Club was the destination for several school superintendents from the Acadiana area yesterday.

The superintendents said one of the major issues facing students, parents, teachers and administrators in the coming years will be the new Common Core educational standards that students will have to follow.

Louisiana is one of 45 states that are adopting the new standards for English language arts and math.

Common Core is being integrated into more classrooms this year with a complete implementation by the 2014-2015 school year.

Several of the superintendents pointed out that Common Core sets benchmarks but does not provide a curriculum for classroom use.

Lafayette Parish Superintendent Pat Cooper said the idea is that teachers can develop their own strategies for reaching those goals.

Other leaders, however, said more guidelines might be useful, especially in the early days of implementation.
