The implementation of the Common Core State Standards has been a mess and has put these standards at risk of survival.
"I am a supporter of the Common Core State Standards. It is important that a student in California gain the same basic knowledge and skills as a student in Arkansas. We live in a global and mobile community; we owe it to future generations to prepare them for this new world. Plus, many of my teacher friends say these standards are strong and provide new challenges for excellence for their students. I trust their judgment."
