Forest's Common Core questions

Lt. Gov. Dan Forest continues to question the national Common Core education standards that state public schools implemented last year.

The State Board of Education has spent part of its last two meetings talking and asking questions about the standards.

Forest on Thursday released 20 pages of questions he wants answered before the board's August meeting, and an accompanying video.

The questions were in a letter to state Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson.

" I am concenred that North Carolina has not done the proper due diligence in vetting everything associated with the Common Core standards and what it will mean for our children, our parents and our schools," Forest said in the video.
