All teachers will be on the same level
States save money

Technology $$$$$$

Each state has to change

Currently Common Core Standards cover English & Math ONLY.
having specific standards help to know EXACTLY what you have to teach. You are able to focus on specific skills

-CCSS tests will be used to evaluate teachers

-This specific district took away all textbooks & workbooks.

-Curriculum doesn't seem set in stone yet-very demanding.

+any worth while activity will meet CCSS

Believes elementary teachers have it worse

-Forced to start reading standards and THEN have time for great literature to apply.

-Skeletal curriculum guide
Standards divided into 2 categories
