Key topics include:
• Ongoing implementation of the common core state standards in English language arts and mathematics. Adopted by forty-six states and the District of Columbia, the common core state standards present tremendous challenges and opportunities for state legislatures to make changes to their education delivery systems. From assessments to teacher training, states must make critical decisions on a range of implementation issues in order to fulfill the promise of college- and career-ready standards.
• Teacher evaluation. This topic is of tremendous interest in states and fueled by state applications for the Race to the Top program, as well as for waivers from the No Child Left Behind Act.
