Eleven counties in West Virginia are ditching Common Core based high school math classes in favor of the old classes. The Charleston Gazette reports that these counties will revert to the old Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II courses instead of the new Common Core based Math I, II, and III classes.
These are the counties:
Brooke, Calhoun, Greenbrier, Hardy, Harrison, Kanawha, Mason, Morgan, Pendleton, Putnam, Ritchie
But here’s the kicker—the kids will still be tested on Common Core-based standards even if they take the old math classes. Other counties still have time to revert as well.
