Common-Standards Watch: New Hampshire Makes 23

By Catherine Gewertz — July 09, 2010 1 min read

New Hampshire adopted the common standards yesterday. They’ve posted news of the move on the home page of their website.

There’s much more on the flurry of state adoptions in my story on www.edweek.org today, too.

Those of you interested in the debate over common standards in Massachusetts, whose standards are viewed as among the best in the country, might want to watch the webcast of a recent session on it hosted by the Rennie Center there.

Also, on the chance that you thought the “don’t tread on me” sentiment toward the common standards had somehow dried up and blown away, some folks in Colorado will be quick to tell you that you’re mistaken.
