Research shows that teachers have the most significant impact on student learning and achievement among school-based factors.
For many years, academic standards in the U.S. have differed by state, district and sometimes even school. The varying standards have resulted in wide disparities in student knowledge.
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards by most states is an attempt to create guidelines that can be used by educators across the country to teach math and English, with the goal of improving student achievement.
This Why Science special report on “Increasing Student Achievement with Common Core Standards” offers guidance to educators on what to expect as the standards are implemented.
We hope you find our special report on the common core standards helpful. Enjoy!
