SC schools chief now says Common Core can be part of review

A spokesman for state schools chief Mick Zais said Thursday that educators will have access to Common Core – along with other education standards – as they work to write new standards for S.C. students. The position marks a reversal for Zais, who previously told The State he would not allow a copy of Common Core standards in the room with educators writing the standards.
