Replacing Common Core: New Name, Same Standards?
New learning standards being crafted for New York State are likely to be similar to the Common Core standards they'll be replacing.
That's the finding of a new research report form the New York State School Boards Association.
The report, "Replacing the Common Core: New Name, Same Standards" examines what happened in three states that repealed the Common Core Learning standards and adopted their own state standards in English and Math.
Independent observers found that new standards adopted in Indiana and South Carolina were not substantially different from Common Core.
In Oklahoma, there were more significant differences, but also a number of similarities.
"The survey results suggest that whatever standards New York ends up with will probably not be dramatically different from the Common Core standards in place now," said Executive Director Timothy Kremer.
The State Board of Regents is set to act on a revised set of learning standards in November.
