JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri educators will meet next week to discuss an effort to replace a hodgepodge of educational goals with a uniform set of expectations for students.
Currently, education standards vary wildly from state to state. That promises to change after sweeping new education benchmarks were released earlier this month called the Common Core State Standards.
States are expected to use the standards to revise their curriculum and tests to make learning more uniform across the country.
The June 28 symposium in Jefferson City will provide participants with an understanding of the new standards. Participants will learn how Missouri will use the standards and how districts will be affected.
