Brennan(Hour 3c) Former Superintendent Tom Brennan brought back the book with 1930’s standards.  Back then, the standards were much higher than the ones we have today in our public schools.  Common Core will make matters worse according to Brennan, and he agreed with our humble host that a focus on content instead of the process of learning would be better.  ‘We don’t spend enough time in the classrooms with the kids,” says Tom, and he shared his concerns, solutions and his assessment of the development of standards in Manchester.
