Common-Standards Watch: South Carolina Makes 25

As of today, half the states have adopted the common standards, with South Carolina the latest to climb on board.

"This isn't a top-down federal mandate," said state superintendent Jim Rex in a statement issued this afternoon. "It's a collective effort of the states, which can adapt the Common Core standards to their individual situations and timelines."

Rex said the overall content of South Carolina's math and reading standards already is closely aligned with the common standards, but that the new standards would require students to master that content in greater depth.
