Many parents attending Tuesday's La Cañada Unified School District board meeting expressed skepticism at the new Common Core standards being employed this year in schools around California, according to the La Cañada Sun.
The new system will replace replace California Content Standards and its STAR testing. Under the current system, LCF public school students have scored extremely well, and the district has been ranked as the second-highest public school district in California for five straight years.
Anais Wenn, the district’s new assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction, made the presentation at the meeting of the new standards, according to the report.
“Do you think consorting with the federal government on politically correct, watered-down standards is really going to help our schools?” La Cañada resident Rex Nishimura asked Wenn, according to the Sun. “Our kids do great right now on SAT tests under the current standards.”
