In a DCI letter to the editor Oct 16, Tammy Smith wrote, "Mr. Mason stated that I voted for Common Core. I have never voted for Common Core.
I supported the adoption of the Colorado Academic Standards."
Those standards include the ENTIRE Common Core standard! Either Tammy was unaware the state standards included Common Core which would be gross incompetence for a school board member or she intentionally wanted to deceive. Either way is not good.
From the Colorado Department of Education website: "The Colorado Department of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in August 2010. In December 2010, CDE released the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) for mathematics and reading, writing and communicating incorporating the ENTIRE CCSS."
