Baltimore County teachers at a town hall meeting Thursday night told  Superintendent Dallas Dance they are desperately trying to keep up with the fast  pace of state-mandated educational changes that have brought them more work and  much frustration.

Teachers, some in tears and some angry, said the first year of the county’s  introduction of its new curriculum tied to the Common Core had significant  problems that have yet to be addressed. More than 100 teachers attended the  forum, the first Dance has held with teachers.

Baltimore County teachers file a grievance…

…over workload from Common Core

Local school districts were expected to have written a curriculum — a  detailed road map of lessons — based on the new standards, but the county fell  behind in the elementary grades.
