The Common Core State Standards are one of the most significant initiatives in American education in decades. Yet the swiftness with which they were developed and adopted has left educators uncertain about exactly what they are. A number of myths about the standards have emerged.
Myth #1 The Common Core State Standards are a national curriculum.
Myth #2 The Common Core State Standards are an Obama administration initiative.
Myth #3 The Common Core standards represent a modest change from current practice.
Myth #4 States cannot implement the Common Core standards in the current budget climate.
Myth #5 The Common Core State Standards will transform schools.
