New report appraises state standards
| Jul 22, 2010
A new report from the Fordham Institute appraises current state standards in math and English in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., compared to the Common Core standards now being considered for adoption. Analysts examined the quality and rigor of each state’s standards in these subjects, as well as the Common Core standards, and graded them.
The State of State Standards–and the Common Core–in 2010 shows that the Common Core standards surpass those currently used by the majority of states. But several states have standards that are on par with the Common Core. Included in the report are reviews for every state plus D.C., highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of their standards.
The report, including state reviews, is now available on the Thomas B. Fordham Institute’s website.
