The editor reflects on the implementation of the U.S. Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSI). He cites criticisms against the CCSI from conservative groups including the Family Research Council. He mentions the reluctance of some high school teachers to support the CCSI despite the fact that they are aware of its potential impact. He also calls on teachers, principals, district administrators and faculty members to carefully monitor the impact of CCSI on secondary students.
