Recent studies reveal a growing gap between the texts that students read in school and those they'll be required to read in college and the workforce. In response, states are stepping up, raising their standards and lifting the expectation for all students with the new Common Core State Standards for language arts literacy.
To help districts and schools adopt and succeed with these new standards, Achieve3000 has formed Common Core Educators Coalition (CCEC) together with leading educators nationwide. We invite you to join this vibrant, growing community and tap into a growing wealth of best practices for making Common Core the foundation for success.
