States Replace Common Core With Carbon Copies

Highlighted Story: Why are so many states replacing Common Core with carbon copies?


From Emmanuel Felton, The Hechinger Report: “Common Core’s staying power might be explained by what it is and isn’t. Common Core, after all, is not a curriculum. It doesn’t mandate a set of textbooks or tests. It doesn’t provide lesson plans or scripts for teachers. It’s a list of targets for what students should be able to do at the end of each grade. And how different can those targets really be?”
