The recent presidential campaign wasn’t overwhelmed with education as a main issue, but we did hear Common Core come up at times. President-Elect Trump has stated he was opposed to common core. So what does that mean for Michigan’s schools?

Understandably, some schools are worried, or at least confused. When will these decisions be made? What information will the SRO use to make determinations? Can decisions be appealed? Is closure the only option?
