President Elect Donald Trump is planning on making changes to the school system and revise the way common core is done. Trump said he would set the guidelines, but it would still be up to the states to make the full change. Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau, Superintendent of Taylorville Schools, said he understands the need of common core classes, especially when it comes to testing for the SAT and ACT.

Fuerstenau said on the other hand, not every student goes to a four year university. He said many go to a two year college or vocational school and it's important those students have classes that prepare them for their future as well.

Fuerstenau appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
