Speaking of the Common Core

The Research Bureau has an event Monday regarding the Common Core:

Digging into the Common Core: Education Standards & Testing in Massachusetts 
 In 2010, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts adopted the Common Core State Standards developed by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. Since that time, the standards have been captured within the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, incorporated into local school curricula, and measured by the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exams. Are Massachusetts students thriving or struggling under the new system? Where do we go from here? 
 Join the Worcester Regional Research Bureau and its panel of experts to discuss the status of educational standards and testing in the Commonwealth.
