Hearing leaves Gainesville's Rogers wary of Common Core standards

LAWRENCEVILLE — State Rep. Carl Rogers, R-Gainesville, spent Monday hearing from educators and members of the public on Common Core education standards, part of what he says is a long learning process on how the standards are working for Georgia schools. Supporters and some opponents of the standards made their case to a panel of Georgia House of Representatives members who are tasked with making recommendations on the role of federal spending in public schools. The committee, formed as a compromise to House members opposed to Common Core education standards, heard about federal grants and funding that Georgia receives, including free or reduced-price meals.
