Today brings another round of evidence that much work needs to be done to transform the common standards into practice.

A report released today by the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center (EPE publishes EdWeek) and Education First concludes that states “have a long way to go” before they have solid plans to implement the standards. My story has a link to the report.
