PTA Common Core

This video series was developed through a partnership with the National PTA to support their ongoing effort to provide accurate information about the Common Core State Standards. The videos raise the voices of students, parents, teachers, school leaders and policymakers with a particular focus on educator reflections on the value and implications of the new standards. The videos include two main videos that focus on college and career ready standards. Additionally, there are 10 vignettes that focus on specific topics and voices.
