In February, Kentucky became the first state to formally adopt the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics. In the following weeks, three other states—Hawaii, Maryland, and West Virginia announced their formal approval of the standards.
Since the morning of June 2, several other states have also indicated their commitment to adopting the standards including Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. (Click on a state listed above to read more about its adoption of the Common Core State Standards.)
