Report: States Have 'Far to Go' in Transition to Common Core

Today brings another round of evidence that much work needs to be done to transform the common standards into practice.

A report released today by the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center (EPE publishes EdWeek) and Education First concludes that states "have a long way to go" before they have solid plans to implement the standards. My story has a link to the report.

In the three key areas the researchers asked about—curriculum and instructional resources, teacher professional development, and teacher-evaluation systems—only seven states reported having completed plans in all three. Eighteen reported no completed plans in any of those three areas.
