Imagine this . . . your family has just moved to a new state and your child enters their new school only to find that they didn't learn all of the same things their previous year in their old state/school as their peers did in the new state/school.  Sound familiar?  The Military Interstate Compact is making progress in dealing with circumstances like these for military families, but what if it never had to be an issue in the first place?  What if families knew that no matter where they lived in the United States, their students would learn the same content as their peers at each grade level?  That's what the Common Core State Standards are all about . . . ensuring that all students in the U.S. are learning the same things at each grade level in English Language Arts and Math.  Read more about the Common Core State Standards and how they impact your family's education in the™ Library.
