In 2010, state education chiefs together with governors from across the country released the Common Core State Standards, a set of expectations to help ensure all students are prepared for college and career.

Since that time, more than 40 states have been working with educators and other leaders to implement the standards. With all of the noise surrounding the Common Core, it can be hard to decipher what is actually happening in states across the country with teachers, students, and parents.


In this webcast, four state education chiefs talk about what’s going well, where we can improve and what’s next for implementation of the Common Core State Standards. June Atkinson, North Carolina State Superintendent of Public Schools, Kevin Huffman, Tennessee Commissioner of Education, Lillian Lowery, Maryland State Superintendent of Schools, and Hanna Skandera, New Mexico Secretary of Education spoke about Common Core implementation in their state. Andrew Rotherham, co-founder and partner at Bellwether Education, moderated the conversation.
