Will Elections Shift the Winds for Common Standards?

If you have been following the wave of adoptions of the common standards, you might well wonder what the elections this week will hold for their future.

As my colleague Erik noted below, this election is really worth watching for its potential impact on education.

Even though 41 states have adopted the common standards, who knows what will happen to the commitment to put them into practice when new governors, state boards, state lawmakers, and state education chiefs arrive? The folks over at ASCD take a look at a few places where changes could affect the common standards. Our intrepid reporting staff will keep a watch on the issue as well.
