- The Common Core
The Alexandria Plan
Common Core seeks to ensure that all students, regardless of their circumstance, receive a content-rich education in the full range of the liberal arts and sciences, including English, mathematics, history, the arts, science, and foreign languages. We work with teachers and scholars to create instructional materials, conduct research, and promote policies that support a comprehensive and high-quality education in America’s public schools. Common Core is a Washington, DC-based non-profit 501(c)3 organization, founded in 2007.
- Get to the Core
The Common Core State Standards were developed by leaders from the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The new standards are designed to ensure real understanding. The materials are designed to go deeper into fewer topics, so kids master the material instead of memorizing. At the same time, the learning is more hands-on with a focus on what students will use in life. The new standards level the playing field by creating a framework for educators to teach from across the nation.
of Michigan Common Core Academic Standards
