Former Candidate To Concentrate On Common Core

State Representative Jim Bolin of Canton decided to drop out of the race for Commissioner of Schools & Public Lands and focus instead on his attempts to derail common core standards in South Dakota. According to the website; corestandards.org, “The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.” The standards being adopted by most states would focus on Math and English. Bolin says his opposition is not to standards and high achievement…

While the State Education Department is working with schools on common core, Bolin says it’s a difference in philosophy for him…

Bolin also said he expects a lot of debate on common core standards in next year’s legislative session.
