Arlington, VA — The Common Core State Standards have been approved in most states for more than a year now, but the adoption was the “easy” part. The hard part—implementation from the state level on through individual classrooms—is just getting started. But even with the time devoted by many to explaining the standards, questions remain in many people’s minds.
“Implementing the Common Core,” the latest issue of The State Education Standard—the award-winning journal of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE)—seeks to answer some of those questions and explain what the standards are and what they will mean for students, educators, and policymakers. Here, recognized experts examine the history of the standards from their creation and adoption to implementation and the work being done to develop standards-aligned assessments.
The full journal can be purchased for $10.00. Order online or by phone (800-220-5183).
