Almost every state has fully adopted the program. Today Tennessee voted to put it off for 2 years.
I think Teach to the Test is whar is a bigger problem than trying to catch our kids up with other countries so they can be competitive and successful, which I beleive is at the root of Common Core.
Many well respected professionals etc have positive hopes and expectations for the program. It has been working in KY, one of the first states to implement it in 2010. It will take a long time I think and will need lots of tweaks along the way but overall it seems to me something needs to done to overhaul our education.system and I havent heard any better ideas.
What do you think, you should read the entire page on wikipedia if you dont know the details.
