Board of Ed: recap on change in standards

Chester: overview of curriculum and standards changes in math and ELA
expect to bring revised draft in November; vote out to comment; two months
final version in spring for adoption
McKenna: would like for us to "not be in the weeds"
"here are the major issues that we've grappled"
"I don't know enough about grade six, and I probably have more experience than many around the table in education"
"I'd like to hear more about here's what we struggle with"
Sagan: have gotten both comments
McKenna: maybe we should have two sessions
"I would like to hear the big picture: the ideological, the philosophical"
