Iowa adopted the Common Core standards but renamed them the “Iowa Core.” They read just like the Common Core standards.

 

Teachers in K-3 are concerned about the developmental appropriateness of the literacy standards for young children.

 

The State Education Department has distributed a survey asking teachers what they think of the standards. A teacher in Iowa asked me to post the survey link. Please review the standards and express your views about them.

 

If you are a teacher in Iowa, be sure to take the survey and let the SED know.
