The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative in the United States that details what K-12 students should know in English language artsand mathematics at the end of each grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association  and the  Office and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two-or four-year college programs or to enter the workforce.In the 1990s, the "Standards & Accountability Movement" began in the U.S. as states began writing standards outlining   what students were expected to know and to be able to do at each grade level, and implementing assessment designed to measure whether students were meeting the standards. As part of this education reform movement, the nation's governors and corporate leaders founded Achieve, Inc. in 1996 as a bipartisan organization to raise academic standards and graduation requirements, improve assessments, and strengthen accountability in all 50 states. The initial motivation for the development of the Common Core State Standards was part of the American Diploma Project (ADP)..  Guest  Wendy Lynn Day  of Elect Wendy Lynn Day This Show by Studentsforabetterfuture.com
