N.Y., Mass. Adopt Common Standards; D.C. Next?

By guest blogger Stephen Sawchuk

New York adopted the common standards on Monday—with so little fanfare that I missed it at first—and, of course, Massachusetts officially signed on today, with so much drama involved that it was absolutely impossible to miss.

We'll soon have a full story up on edweek.org analyzing the situation in Massachusetts, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, you'll want to turn your attention to the District of Columbia, which is poised to adopt the standards tonight.

Including the "provisional" adoptions in Washington and Utah, we're now up to 28 states that have adopted the common standards.
