NSBA Conference: The Uncommon Common Core - Where Do They Stand?

In 2010, the nation's governors and state education chiefs announced the release of voluntary common core standards that aim to develop college- and career-ready high school graduates. Within a year, 45 states had signed on. But what began as an unprecedented national consensus soon devolved into controversy where it remains today. Join Patte Barth who will provide a national update on the status of common core and offer insights into their more contentious elements. Leave with some communication strategies to help you engage your community in a common core conversation based on fact, not fiction.  


Fortunately, most of the communication methods discussed during this session are already implemented by CCPS. Again the three points of concern seem to be developmental appropriateness, implementation and measurement.  No clear cut answers were found here. :(
