        Family engagement should be a set of day-to-day practices, attitudes, beliefs and interactions that support learning at home as well as at school, NOT a one-time program. We know that when families take an active interest in their child's learning, students display a more positive attitude toward school.

          Recognizing that our society is more mobile than ever, that students moving from place to place were encountering difficulty with transition from one school to another, and that too many students were graduating from high school unprepared for work or needing remedial college courses, the National Governor's Association, the Council of Chief State School Officers, and Achieve, a non-profit educational organization, came together to try and address these challenges. They hoped that through development of a set of rigorous modern standards it would help the mobile population and raise America's competitiveness on a global scale. Is this a solid and necessary educational reform? Is it an erosion of state authority over education? Whatever your thoughts or positions on Common Core, be informed, and be involved.
