Bloomberg: Common Core ‘A Major Improvement Over Previous Standards’
Common Core state standards are, “a major improvement over previous standards,” say the editors at Bloomberg. The editorial notes that the standards are not perfect, but represent better standards than most states had previously. The editors go on to note:
“The nation’s governors developed Common Core in response to concerns that the dumbing down of standards in some places had left U.S. students at the middle and back of the pack on international tests. The governors did not, as is often thought, devise a national curriculum, which remains the province of states and local school districts.”
