Education Week: District Leaders Urge More Time to Implement Common Core Standards

Four organizations representing school district leaders today called for “adequate” time to manage the tricky transition to the Common Core State Standards and tests.

“Adequate” isn’t defined in the joint statement, however.

“We must make adequate time for a thoughtful conversation about how assessments can be used to provide instructionally useful information to schools in a timely manner,” say the American Association of School Administrators, the National Association of Elementary School Principals, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and the National School Boards Association.
