What is the Common Core?

The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a set of national K-12 standards developed primarily by a nonprofit called Achieve, Inc., in Washington, D.C. under the auspices of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).  It was primarily funded by Bill and Melinda Gates.

The Common Core was developed without state legislative authority.

DON'T MISS THIS NATIONWIDE CONFERENCE CALL about the new AP US HISTORY REVISIONS!!!   Aug 4  5:00pm

"We invite all concerned parents, grandparents and citizens, whether you have students in AP courses or not, to join this very important conference call. A panel of experts will educate you on what the College Board has in store for America's AP U.S. History students and will explain specific steps that can be taken to push back against this egregious attack on the U.S. History standards and curriculum.
Without state pushback, this new APUSH Curriculum Framework will go into effect this fall (2014). Without state pushback, APUSH teachers may have to ignore their own state's U.S. History standards if they hope to prepare their students for success on the new APUSH exam - which will NOT cover material outside the new Framework."

QUOTE
Diane Ravitch:
"We are driven to learn by interest and passion and purpose, not by the soulless collection of test scores, credits, and points. 
We learn best when we want to learn, not because we are ordered to learn. That which we do by mandate is soon forgotten. That which we seek and find becomes ours forever."
