Common Core the 'Great Equalizer of Education'

Many people  mistakenly believe that the Common Core State Standards was a push by the Obama administration to nationalize curriculum. It was not. Joan Benso, president of Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, is urging her state legislature to finalize their implementation. “We live in a transient society. Children often move from school district to school district and even from state to state,” Benso said. “This will bring some alignment to expectations. It is not a specific curriculum, there are no mandated textbooks. It is a great equalizer of education.” Source: The Daily American
