Student Supports and Challenges Common Core Standards

Posted:

A special guest speaks at the Education Funding Committee Meeting...

one who is a direct recipient and supporter of the Common Core State Standards.

These standards provide an understanding of what students are expected to learn throughout their education.

Chloe Rickards is a Minot High School Student who's taking a stand.

She attended a charter-like school in Alabama

When she moved to North Dakota, she found the difference in educational standards to be drastic and lower than at her previous school.

She gives her perspective about North Dakota's education system and expresses the need for more rigorous standards.

Rickards believes part of successful education can be fulfilled by the Common Core.

"The other part of a successful education lies in a joint effort between the school board, the teacher, and the student. First the school board must offer enough specialized courses to satisfy the needs of the students. This includes offering AP courses to challenge advanced students. Or perhaps career oriented classes designed for students exploring occupations," says Chloe Rickards, Student, Minot High School.

Rickards says once those courses are available, teachers should make them known and promote, and encourage them.
