The draft Common Core Standards have been released. The article in the New York times states: "Supporters of the project led by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers hope the lists of things kids should learn at each grade level will replace a patchwork of systems across the country." "The effort is expected to lead to standardization of textbooks and testing and make learning easier for students who move from state to state." http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2010/03/10/us/AP-US-Schools-Standards.html What do YOU think? Will this make life easier for teachers and students? Or make for even more emphasis on tests?
