Reporting on what might change in a Common Core world.

James Vaznis of the Boston Globe laid out—as much as one can at these early, speculative stages, and in less than 500 words—how the Common Core differs from Massachusetts standards and what might change, topic by topic. I am glad he did, I hope he  goes deeper, and I implore all beat reporters to do the same.

    I, too, hope that reporters dig deeper into the Common Core State Standards and the initiative that spurred their creation. This might include investigating the responses by educators (such as the National Council of Teachers of English's at http://www.ncte.org/standards/commoncore) or the Council of Writing Program Administrators (see http://www.wpacouncil.org/node/1839).
