The Common Core Explained (via Education Week)

Apr 07, 2016
A very clear explanation of the history and current state of Common Core Standards is explained in this April 7, 2016 article from Education Week.  Additional resources are available in the article, including links to the Standards themselves and additional articles on EdWeek about Common Core. 

A brief excerpt from the article explaining what the Common Core is, "Pure and simple, they are descriptions of the skills students should have at each grade level in English/language arts and math by the time they finish high school. They're not a detailed, day-to-day curriculum; they're a broad outline of learning expectations from which teachers or district leaders craft a curriculum. "
