RALEIGH — The Academic Standards Review Commission has started the process of modifying the state’s Common Core Standards.

On Monday the group looked at the English Language Arts standards and will analyze the math standards at their next meeting.

The group said they share the same goal of wanting to enhance education for students across the state.

“We don’t need them being discouraged by school, discouraged by education, but we need them to know that there is a tremendous opportunity, but they need to be prepared to have that opportunity,” said Commission Co-Chair Andre Peek.

Over the next 10 months, the commission will work on a proposal that will be given to the State Board of Education.
