ABSTRACT
The author offers his views on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for public education in the U.S. He notes the lack of national curriculum in the country. He mentions the move by states to establish their own education standards which led to confusion as each claimed that their standards were more rigorous. He questions whether CCSS is intended to be a national curriculum or merely an attempt to improve student learning.
