Common Core – Where Do We Stand?
Posted on October 18, 2013 by Stan Jester
Supporters assert it is a high-quality, voluntarily adopted set of national mathematics and language arts standards that will help transform American education by aiming all students at uniform, lofty goals. Opponents argue adoption of the Core was federally coerced, the standards are of dubious quality, and one size simply cannot fit all. Meanwhile, a large majority of Americans know nothing about the Common Core standards, despite the fact they are being implemented in 46 states. In July 2010 the Georgia State Board of Education voted to have Georgia adhere to the Common Core standards.
