JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Meetings in Jefferson City were tense after parents and teachers opposed to common core teaching guidelines clashed with those who want to keep the state’s current teaching standards.
Under the new Missouri law, task forces were planned to meet this week to recommend new benchmarks for Missouri public school students by the 2016-2017 school year.
However, not all the task force members were appointed in Monday’s meeting. Additionally, one task force member shut off the video camera that was recording during Monday’s meeting.
Missouri is among several states stepping away from the common core standards.
