The Marietta Daily Journal – School board standing firm on vote against Common Core

MARIETTA — With Cobb Board of Education members standing firm on their votes, it’s unlikely the vote against purchasing math textbooks affiliated with Common Core State Standards will change.

That doesn’t prohibit the board from discussing other options for this coming school year during its Wednesday morning work session, along with concerns about emails from district staff that Board Chairman Randy Scamihorn said contain “misinformation” about the recent decision to nix the purchase of $7.5 million in math textbooks.

Scamihorn said he was open to reconsidering the textbook issue if any board members had notified him that they had changed their minds — but that hasn’t been the case.

“Nobody to my knowledge has changed their position, so I don’t want to have that debate again,” Scamihorn said. “Why waste the time? We had a spirited discussion on this but once a decision is made, I expect the staff to carry out the board’s decision.”
