The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers and seeks to establish consistent education standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter two or four year college programs or enter the workforce.

I firmly believe that we should teach THE student to his/her potential instead of "Standards" and I believe the best people to make those decisions are in the community and state NOT Washington dc. 4 years ago from a Libertarian in Milligan College, TN
If they wanted to apply it then they should have introduced it slowly, starting at kindergarden, and not change the way that students have been taught from when they were younger. 4 years ago from a Republican in Knoxville, TN
I support standards and expectations being uniform across US states so that. I do not support watered down standards that are purely aimed at passing standardized tests. These standards should be implemented in a very deliberate, non-threatening fashion,... 4 years ago from a Democrat in Tallassee, TN
Schools systems, selected minimums, etc. are so screwed up with politics, unions, and decisions that support "non-failure", that a top-down revamping is absolutely necessary. Common Core is not the answer - how many political attempts have failed?. 4 years ago from a Republican in Pigeon Forge, TN
Yes, but severely revise the learning plan to provide for a more well rounded and more practical education. 4 years ago from a Republican in Franklin, TN
