Agawam Preschool Shows Documentary on Common Core Standards

common coreAGAWAM, Mass. (WGGB) – A Common Core curriculum is coming to Western Mass. schools. But are your children ready?

One preschool in Agawam decided to be proactive in learning more about the new standards by hosting a documentary viewing of “Race to Nowhere,” a film made by a parent which takes a look at the current problems in today’s school systems while discovering ways to fix it.

“It’s a great opportunity because so many of our kids do talk about the intense pressure they are under with all the testing,” Wendy Rua, School Committee Member.

Springfield schools have already begun using the Common Core and by the fall of 2014, all schools will have taken up this new method of teaching.
