Draft of core teaching standards released by CCSSO
| Jul 19, 2010
The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) today released for public comment new draft core teaching standards. The release of the standards signals the beginning of the public comment period which will run until October 15, 2010.
The Model Core Teaching Standards: A Resource for State Dialogue (Draft for Public Comment) was developed by a committee of the Interstate Teacher and Assessment Support Consortium (InTASC) convened by CCSSO, according to a news release from CCSSO. These standards comprise a set of principles, revised from the 1992 model standards. The 2010 model core teaching standards are intended to help policymakers and educators achieve their education reform goals.
In updating the model core teaching standards, efforts were made to ensure they align with other national and state standards documents that were recently revised or released. For more information and to see the standards, visit the CCSSO website.
