Forty-five states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core State Standards for mathematics, a set of uniform benchmarks for achievement that aim to produce more college- and career-ready students.  The standards are in the early stages of implementation in several states.  Kentucky, the first state to implement Common Core and test on it, has seen proficiency scores drop but college- and career-readiness levels rise. North Carolina has also introduced tests keyed toward Common Core, while several other states boast numerous education resources, curricular framework, and other Common Core tools that might prove beneficial to their counterparts across the nation. In this workshop, educators and state officials from Kentucky, North Carolina, and other states will answer questions, share success stories and trouble spots related to Common Core, and propose strategies that other jurisdictions might use to apply the new standards to their curricula.
