Military Families Need Common Core

Students from military families are a prime beneficiary of the new Common Core State Standards.  A new report from MilitaryChild.org has a great primer for military families on why this is so and it can be found at K12 Core Curriculum Standards.

The bottom line - if you are a student and your country asks you to move multiple times in high school shouldn't you be able to have some coherence in your education? Common Core can bring the standardization in direction that our military family members need.

Isn't it ironic that the very party that used to invoke "the troops" oppose an effort that will really help our military and their families.
