NEW YORK CITY — Monday marks the beginning of the NBC News education summit in New York. KSL anchor Nadine Wimmer is out there with the best of the best educators in the United States, including a teacher from Utah, to bring you the latest in developments in education from the summit, and how they affect Utah, along with other important issues that have an impact on our children's chances for success in learning.
In an effort to improve our nation's education system and make students better prepared for college and careers, a new set of standards is now sweeping across classrooms throughout the United States. It's an approach call the Common Core and it has been heavily discussed at the Education Nation summit.
Utah began implementing Common Core two years ago. In fact, a Utah teacher took a sabbatical to help write the curriculum. The methodology is changing the way teachers teach and students learn.
