There has been some discussion, misinformation, criticism and politicalization of Common Core. It is not a federally initiated or run program. The American Diploma Project started in 1996 and the National Governors’ Association and business leaders saw a great need to standardize assessment, graduation requirements, knowledge achievement, skills acquisition and classes to prepare all students for work, college and the challenges of modern American life. Student would move from state to state, city to city or county to county and found they were either behind or a head of their classmates. Therefore they were frustrated and had to struggle to either keep up with the work or bored because they already covered the material. Teachers, counsels and administrators had to develop remedial programs to accommodate the transferees. You can read more about Common Core at: http://www.gradebook.org/CommonCoreStandards.htm
