If she could speak to Vacaville Unified leaders today, the California Day of the Teacher, Roxann Burns would tell trustees that “it’s been a rigorous year.”

Speaking Tuesday in her fifth-grade Markham Elementary portable classroom, she alluded to the ongoing historic change in the way California students are taught: Common Core State Standards, what students should know at each grade level.

An “Air Force brat” born in Laon, France, Burns said the change, including the standardized state tests taken entirely on computers, will challenge teachers and students for several years before they “become proficient.”
