Colleges Must Help Further the Goals of Common Core Standards, Report Says

Colleges Must Help Further the Goals of Common Core Standards, Report Says | CCRS | Scoop.it

"[O]ne of the biggest barriers to carrying out the standards, according to the report, is that colleges have not adjusted their admissions, financial-aid, and remedial-education policies to line up with the standards.


As a result, the report says, 'The Common Core standards appear at the moment to end at the college gate.'"

Washington Post on What is the Common Core? Here’s what you need to know about it.

Washington Post on What is the Common Core? Here’s what you need to know about it. | CCRS | Scoop.it

"Common Core is a set of education standards -- for English and math -- that were adopted in 2010. Forty-five states and the District of Columbia decided to follow the new guidelines. Alaska, Nebraska, Texas and Virginia opted out, while Minnesota decided to only adopt the English standards (with others perhaps joining them soon). These states began implementing the standards last year.

The standards haven't created national curricula -- state and local educators are still in charge of that. Instead, they establish benchmarks that make it easier to compare how students are doing across state lines, and to make sure students across the country are learning the same essentials."
