The Common Core State Standards are, and always have been, about helping students build the skills they need to succeed in college or a career.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new blog post detailing recent political efforts in Tennessee and Georgia to support implementation of the Common Core State Standards to help increase student mastery of 21st century skills and college and career readiness.
“The Common Core State Standards are, and always have been, about helping students build the skills they need to succeed in college or a career,” said Chet D. Linton, School Improvement Network CEO and president. “If implemented with fidelity, the Standards have the potential to raise the rigor and quality of education in every state and system where they are adopted.”
The new blog post discusses the recent political efforts in Georgia and Tennessee to support statewide Common Core implementation and how the Standards will impact the hundreds of teachers and thousands of students in both states.
