We are following different states as they work towards proficiency in and aligning their curriculum and assessments to the Common Core State Standards. In this Common Core 360 program we watch as Utah educational leaders start using the Common Core Standards.
This is an excerpt from the first of six segments of this program. The Common Core Standards align clearly the vision and mission of Utah state leaders and educators.
-The Utah State Board and the State Office of Education worked diligently in adopting this set of standards, the Utah Common Core.
-Common Core looks across states, schools, and districts at the kind of quality instruction students need in order to excel.
-The Common Core is necessary in order for the United States, and Utah in particular, to keep up with the rest of the world on several international tests.
-Common Core Standards align students to college and career readiness when they leave high school.
-The vision for Utah education is to have students become 21st Century Learners.
