Our students need to know not only basic reading and math skills but also skills that will help them succeed in a constantly changing world. They must be able to think critically, to analyze and to solve problems.

Changes in the skills and knowledge our students need require new goals for learning. These new goals, defined by the Common Core, require changes in how teachers teach and how students are assessed.
