Common Standards Update
Nearly eighty percent of states including the District of Columbia have now adopted the common core state standards. This month Kansas (October 12) and New Mexico (October 19) were the latest states to announce they were officially on board. In September, Minnesota announced they would be adopting the English Language-Arts standards but not the math standards. So far, they are the only state to adopt the standards this way.
