U.S. Chamber of Commerce Support of Common Core

Make Their Minds FlyThe U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is asking businesses to pledge their support for the Common Core State Standards in a new video.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has announced the release of its latest video in support of the Common Core State Standards, Make Their Minds Fly. This short video and corresponding infographic illustrates how higher standards will help teachers nurture a child’s natural curiosity and imagination to help them become the thinkers, doers, creators, and innovators they were born to be.

The Chamber of Commerce website also offers an interactive map that provides revealing (and disturbing) data for each state on the current achievement levels of students.
