Common Core Parent Information

To paraphrase a national education website, "In response to concerns about American student achievement and just how prepared students are for college and careers, education leaders in 48 states, along with the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), have written a set of standards for students across the U.S. The common core state standards were released in 2010. Now, 44 states are working to implement them by 2013-2014."
