In order to better understand an issue that will affect every aspect of K-12 schooling, I recommend you take three important steps:
1.Watch Mike McShane’s Top 3 video (below) on the Common Core.
2.Read “5 Things Every Parent Needs to Know About the Common Core” and AEI’s recent research paper series, which addresses how the Common Core will affect other school improvement efforts.
3. Engage in the conversation. Don’t just jump on the pro- or anti- bandwagon; ask hard questions and seek out answers… because kids’ futures are depending on it.
