The Common Core education standards that the state is currently seeking to implement are designed with the understanding that there are certain sets of knowledge that everyone needs to succeed. With that in mind, these standards seek to ensure all Ohio children are able to meet that standard of success.

If you are confused by conflicting opinions of Common Core, you are in the right place. Below you will find several links to help you better understand this initiative. As always, you should feel free to contact my office with any additional questions. You can also read my thoughts on Common Core here.
