The Business Roundtable plans to convene a panel of experts to judge alignment of common-core instructional materials in less than a year.

The group of corporate executives is in discussions with representatives from the Gates and Hewlett foundations, Achieve, the National Governors Association, the Council of Chief State School Officers, and America Achieves to draft a business plan within six months.

Formal criteria haven't been set for panelists, but those who served on the standards-writing teams would be likely candidates. Others could be content-area experts. No one who represents vendors of instructional materials will be allowed to serve.

Establishing such a panel is considered politically risky.
