Fordham takes a look at the tough questions of Common Core governance and implementation. Interesting project worth checking out. I participated and here’s my take on some of that from TIME a few weeks ago, too.
Also, at Whiteboard we asked our insider panel some questions about this a few months back. Couple of key takeaways/data points: 68 percent felt that the likely outcome of the midterm elections would affect Common Core momentum and 46 percent (the largest plurality on the question) believed that the ultimate governance arrangement would be state led with minimal federal input. About the same percentage, however, felt that cut scores (pdf) on any test linked to common core should come from an independent body. Most insiders saw little prospect of that happening though.
