News in Brief
Stuart J. Udell has been named the CEO of the online education provider K12 Inc.
Most of the K-8 math series it reviewed last year were judged as failing to live up to claims that they were aligned to the Common Core State Standards. After coming under attack for its methodology, the group changed its process.
The new review found that Connecting Math Concepts (grades K-5) by publisher McGraw-Hill; Glencoe (grades 6-8) also by McGraw-Hill; MathLinks (6-8) by the Center for Mathematics and Teaching; and Springboard (6-8) by the College Board did not fully meet its criteria for alignment to the standards.
