The Common Core Standards-time for us all to get with it!

On the Distinctive Schools website ( http://www.distinctiveschools.org ) our webmaster Matt Cullen has placed an impressive presentation developed by The College Board and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.  I highly recommend this to all school and school district leaders.  It is based on real data, is real alarming, and really important.  It is one of the best calls-to-action I have seen on the topic, and may be worth sharing with your school, district, or network team.

The shift to Common Core Standards will be daunting for schools in many states.  It will get our students in a more competitive mode (globally) and will cause us to serve kids and families with more rigorous, more relevant and more real-world purpose.  The value-proposition for kids coming to and succeeding in school will be stronger.

Take a look at the work, and thanks to The College Board and NASSP for making this work available to us.
