The past few months there has been a lot in the conservative media about the new Common Core education standards. The National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) together formed the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) to develop a set of academic standards to be used in common across all states. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a set of learning standards in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. These standards, if adopted by a state, will replace existing state standards in these subject areas. You can download the standards by visiting the Common Core State Standards Initiative website.
There is a great website here in Ohio teaching about the Common Core. http://ohioansagainstcommoncore.com/
