The Common Core State Standards and Equity: Educators Tell Their Stories

This webinar focused on the intersection of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and equity. In 2014, the Alliance began documenting—through a series of video monographs—the stories of schools, districts, and states across the country as they implement the CCSS. Specifically, educators shared what they are doing to ensure that struggling secondary students are prepared for college, a career, and life. Their insights from the practitioner level serve as a valuable resource for other schools, districts, and states as they implement the CCSS.
