Report: Few States Have Solid Common Core Plans

Education Week (1/13, Gewertz) reports that only seven of the 46 states (and DC) to have adopted the Common Core State Standards "have fully developed plans to put the standards into practice in three key areas" according to an analysis which found that most states are still far from having cogent plans. The piece describes the methodology behind the change, adding that "Curriculum and instructional materials stood out as the area in which states have made the least progress. Thirty-five reported that they are making or have completed plans to provide such materials and resources, but 11 reported no plans in that area." Teacher professional development, Education Week reports, would appear to be states' primary focus.
