Education Week just released a new interactive map that shows where states stand with Common Core.
Here is a disclosure. “We have not tried to pick apart each state’s standards and judge which ones created new standards that are truly distinct from the common core. Adopting “new” standards can mean different things in different states, so different people might come to different judgments about the total number of states that use the common core. Also: Keep in mind that, in some cases, state school boards are required by law to review, revise, or reconsider their academic standards periodically, and for some states, that time is now or relatively soon. Finally: If a state hasn’t finalized a decision about rewriting or replacing the common core, we haven’t changed its status as a common-core state.”
For instance New York still hasn’t approved their new standards. Indiana, Tennessee and South Carolina were essentially rebrands. Still in terms of a visual, it is helpful to track state action.
Update: Just want to make clear I understand most of the states that have taken action, with the exception of Oklahoma, have offered some sort of rebranding or changed very little with Common Core. I’ve written about this in the past. This is why I included Education Week‘s disclaimer they were not opining about the “new” standards these states implemented only that there was some action taken.
