Educator Perspectives on the Common Core State Standards

As part of its work on the implementation of the Common Core State Standards and equity, the Alliance for Excellent Education has created a series of videos highlighting how five states—California, Colorado, Kentucky, Maryland, and Ohio—are implementing the Common Core State Standards and serving significant percentages of low income students or students of color. The videos, which are based on interviews that the Alliance conducted with teachers and school, district, and state education leaders, are meant to serve as a valuable resource for other schools, districts, and states implementing the Common Core. Hear from educators who are doing the work of implementing the standards and get their perspective.
