The Conversation; Uncommon Common Cores!

Accountability or Authentic Assessment?

Standards. The History and Mystery are discussed and debated.

Announced on June 1, 2009, the Common Core State Standards were officially delivered to the nation-at-large. In truth, the concept was introduced just over forty years ago in 1971. As a country we crept closer to what we see today. (See an Overview to Common Core State Standards for the history.) The topic, CCSS, is not a simple one. Nor is there one Standard, Common, or universal point of view. Educators disagree. Please peruse, ponder, and offer your perspective.
