Common Core In New York State Faces Many Changes And Challenges In The New Year


This past year the Common Core teaching standards in Math and English were in a state of upheaval in New York, and it looks like there will be more changes for the teaching standards in 2016.

The Innovation Trail’s Solvejg Wastvedt takes a closer look at what may change for three specific aspects of the Common Core curriculum.

Solvejg Wastvedt grew up in western Pennsylvania and graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Over the summer, she served in Los Angeles as an intern on NPR's National Desk. Plus, before coming to Upstate New York, Solvejg worked at the Minneapolis community radio station KFAI. When she isn't reporting the news, Solvejg enjoys running and exploring hiking trails.
