Common Core State Standards
Change can be good!
Although change can be hard, it can also be good. Our world is not the same place it was when WE were in elementary school. Education has to change with the times and Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are an effort to do just that. Students should be adequately prepared to go in any direction they choose when they have completed their education, whether that be college or the work force. The CCSS raise the bar on math, reading comprehension, technology literacy, listening and speaking skills. Students are up for the challenge, we have to be, too!
