Education Expert Chet Linton of School Improvement Network Explains What Common Core Standards Are and Are Not in Television Interview

Common Core Standards

The Common Core Standards were developed by states, education experts and business leaders as a set of minimum standards that students must achieve to be ready for college or a career when they finish high school.

School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today released a television interview of education expert Chet Linton detailing the purpose of the Common Core Standards and debunking common myths about Common Core. Linton’s education expertise comes from his positions as CEO and President of School Improvement Network, his appointment as a member of the Utah Governor’s Vision and Mission Committee, a steering committee for the Governor’s Education Commission, and from speaking at national and international conferences about education in the US and abroad.

“The Common Core Standards were developed by states, education experts and business leaders as a set of minimum standards that students must achieve to be ready for college or a career when they finish high school,” said Linton. “Because they are more rigorous than most state standards have ever been and establish a uniform standard of education across states, the Common Core Standards have the potential to make a dramatic impact in individual students’ success in college and career, and improve US economic growth and global competitiveness.”

In the television interview, which aired on KSL Studio 5, Linton outlines common myths surrounding the Common Core Standards, their origin and content, and explains the role Common Core will play in classrooms towards improving student learning and achievement.
