Alamance County math teacher helps simplify Common Core
If you have a child in school, you may have heard about the Common Core–a new set of nationwide standards for math and language arts.
The standards have been criticized by many who say the standards are too complicated and hard to teach.
Heather Stephens, a 7th grade math teacher at Southern Middle School in Alamance County is trying to change that.
She was selected to help simplify the Common Core after a nationwide search to find someone to write new lesson plans.
