NC commission reviewing Common Core standards for more than 2,500 public schools has no money


WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina — The numbers aren't adding up for a group that's supposed to rewrite North Carolina's English and math standards for more than 2,500 public schools.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported ( the bill creating the Academic Standards Review Commission says the panel should have money to hire staff, conduct research and cover the expenses of its members. But the bill doesn't say how much money the commission will receive or the source of that money.

One of the bill's primary sponsors said he expected the Department of Administration to cover budget because the commission is housed in that department. A department spokesman says no money is available.

The commission has a year to review the Common Core targets for math and English between kindergarten and high school graduation.
