Why are the Common Core State Standards good for students?

Common standards are good for students because:

  • They help prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and careers.
  • They give students more time to focus on depth of understanding topics being covered.
  • Clear standards help students realize what is expected of them and allow them to engage in self-directed learning.
