California appears to be ahead of the country in putting Common Core in place, according to the new Travis School District board president, who attended a San Diego conference that included workshops about the education standards.
“I’m just going to ask the community to keep an open mind,” Ivery Hood said.
Hood said he made a day trip Friday to attend part of the Annual Education Conference and Trade Show conducted by the California School Boards Association. The event took place Dec. 5-7 at the San Diego Convention Center.
