Common Core [State] StandardsPosted: January 10, 2013
I think the word [State] is just a placeholder.
Once the few holdout states are bullied into adopting, I’m convinced the name will be changed to CCNS – Common Core National Standards.
The added benefit (and I use that word in the most facetious way) will be that the publishers will be able to push 2.0 versions of their books and support materials to reflect the name change.
Maybe a couple of years after that, the [Common] and [Core] will be dropped and we can simply be honest and call them what their creators intended from the outset.
BTW – I refuse to link to the CC[S]S. Poison.
