What’s up with Common Core?

Most U.S. states signed on to the Common Core State Standards Initiative when it was rolled out in 2010. Over time, more than 20 states eventually repealed, revised, or rolled back parts of the program. Nine states as well as Puerto Rico are now non-adopters. At this point, it’s hard to tell which states are Common Core states, which states repealed Common Core, or which states might have “rebranded” their standards (but they still look a lot like Common Core). A recent New York Times article traces Common Core’s ups and downs and asks the question “What Happened to Common Core?”

Common Core is actually still alive and kicking, albeit via many new forms. We created a Common Core web page and map in order to help decode this mystery.

Rest assured, whether you are looking for alignment to Common Core, similar standards like Kentucky Academic Standards, or completely separate standards like those of Texas, EdGate has it all. In addition to Common Core, our standards repository contains standards for all 50 U.S. states as well as Puerto Rico. Please contact EdGate to learn more about how we can meet all of your standards needs.
