Common core

The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative in the United States that details what K-12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two-or four-year college programs or to enter the workforce.

  • Forty-four of the fifty U.S. states and the District of Columbia are members of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

  • States of Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia, Alaska, Nebraska and Indiana not adopting the initiative at a state level.

  • Minnesota has adopted the English Language Arts standards but not the Mathematics standards.

  • Several states that initially adopted Common Core have since voted to repeal or replace Common Core, including Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.
