July 2012 Issue Brief: The Common Core

School districts across the nation are gearing up for full-scale implementation of the Common Core, in anticipation of new assessments.

What are the best practices in Common Core implementation? What kind of professional development is needed for teachers? What will the assessments look like? How much will it all cost?

In this month’s issue brief, we focus on the Common Core, pulling together resources on Common Core implementation, assessment, necessary funding and best practices.  We’d love to hear what’s working for you, so please respond to our Call for Commentary.
