Some Northlanders gathered to hear more about academic standards which they say are causing headaches for teachers and students alike.
Northlanders Against Common Core hosted the event.
The standardized education curriculum in English and math is implemented throughout the country.
Those against the regulations say it’s taking away freedom in the classroom.
“One of the great concerns about Common Core, justifiable concerns about Common Core, is its going to absolutely reduce the amount of state and local control districts and even individual teachers will have to be able to teach what they think needs to be taught to the kids in their own classrooms,” FreedomProject Education Academic Director Dr. Duke Pesta said.
Common Core standards for history will also be implemented.
