The Sound of Ideas: Common Core Update
Ohio's almost at a full, statewide launch of the Common Core, a new set of learning expectations for what K-12 should know in math and English.
Beginning in fall 2014, new standardized tests will roll out that are aligned to the new set of standards.
But there's still some contention, apprehension, and competing ideas about the Common Core-- in fact, Indiana officially put their implementation of Common Core on pause last month.
Earlier today, WCPN's daily call-in talk show The Sound of Ideas took a deeper look at where Ohio is currently standing on the Common Core.

Guests included the Fordham Institute’s Chad Aldis, Rep. Andy Thompson, a Republican from Marietta who introduced an anti-Common Core bill last year, Terrance O. Moore from Hillsdale College, and StateImpact's own Amy Hansen.
