Posted By on Fri, Mar 13, 2015 at 2:49 PM

Here's Gov. Asa Hutchinson's announcement of a committee that will review the Common Core curriculum.

Governor Asa Hutchinson has announced the members of the Governor’s Council on Common Core Review to be chaired by Lt. Governor Tim Griffin. These individuals come from every corner of the state, representing every Congressional District, and were chosen out of more than 700 applicants. As promised, this council is made up of teachers, parents, business leaders and students, and while they might have different perspectives on Common Core, they all bring an open mind and a willingness to listen. Most importantly, though, each member agrees that high standards for Arkansas students is a must and will focus on such throughout this process.

Members are as follows:

Kay Giddens, Searcy. Parent Representative.
Gary Rhinehart, Scranton. Scranton Elementary, Principal.
Lisa Cooper, Melbourne. Northcentral Arkansas Education Services Cooperative, Teacher.
Mike Luttrell, Springdale. Walker Brothers Insurance, President.
