Common-Standards Watch: South Dakota Takes A Step

Welcome back, common-standards-watch addicts! In this slow post-Race to the Top season, I have only incremental news for you, but perhaps that's better than nothing.

In that spirit, I can report that yesterday the South Dakota board of education voted to move the common standards on to the next phase in its approval process: a public hearing. That hearing will take place Nov. 29, with the possibility of a vote by the panel the same day.

Stay tuned as we keep you informed, to the best of our ability, on the common standards initiative. I typically post the map only when additional states have been added, but since I know that some of you really, really miss it, and it's been a while, I'll post it today to remind everyone where things stand (you can't say I'm not tenderhearted.).
