Question from audience: If we drop Common Core how do we handle the lack of federal funds from the government?
Lucarelli: I don’t think we could throw out Common Core. We have the opportunity to focus on the things we don’t like and make changes.
Penta: I don’t think the federal government is ever going to stop funding if we don’t implement Common Core curriculum. This is something that needs to be done over time.
Carter: The guidelines are coming from the state. We can’t just drop it overnight. Children can be held back or prevented from receiving their diplomas.
Dixon: We can chose our own curriculum and materials but can’t throw out testing.
Question from the audience: Are textbooks presenting a biased and unbalanced view of our country?
