The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy. http://teaching.about.com/od/assess/f/What-Are-Some-Pros-And-Cons-Of-The-Common-Core-Standards.htm?p=1 http://teaching.about.com/od/assess/f/What-Are-Some-Pros-And-Cons-Of-The-Common-Core-Standards.htm?p=1 http://core4all.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/top-3-benefits-of-the-common-core-state-standards-and-a-thank-you/ 3 Top Benefits of the Common Core State Standards

"To maintain America's competitive edge, we need all of our students to be prepared and ready to compete with students from around the world", said NGA Vice Chair Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas. "Common standards that allow us to internationally benchmark our students' performance with other top countries have the potential to bring about a real and meaningful transformation of our education system to the benefit of all Americans." http://www.ocde.us/CommonCoreCA/Pages/Mission-of-the-Common-Core-State-Standards.aspx Higher Standards doesn't necessarily mean higher education
