Report: Higher Education Community Failing To Align With Common Core


The Huffington Post (7/23) reports that according to a new report from the New America Foundation, while elementary and secondary schools in most of the country are working to implement the Common Core Standards, colleges and universities are not “even close to ready.” The report indicates that though the Common Core was designed largely to promote college readiness, the higher education community wasn’t involved in its creation. The report found that one reason for this disconnect is that “it’s hard to come up with a single definition of what makes a student ready for college.”
