VA SOLs Versus the Common Core State Standards

Should Virginia continue its long tradition of local control over what our children learn, when they learn it, and how they’re evaluated, or should Virginia cede that to the federal government and become a full participant in the Common Core State Standards initiative?

That’s the question panelists for the Prince William County Committee of 100 will consider Wednesday night.

Moderator Dr. Sam Hill, Provost, Northern Virginia Community College
