Common Core

New York’s Common Core Test Scores

A look at the results from the first round of exams linked to new learning standards show that the state has a long way to go in adequately educating students.

The significance of these results for New York may be simply that we can anticipate the same for Kansas, just adopting the Common Core (although state legislators are fighting the standards to the dismay of state educators).

How important the common core standards will be in preparing students to attend college? Very important, I hope. We will know in a few years...
