What is it?
Up until now, every state in the US taught their own curriculum at their pace, but starting in the fall of 2014, nearly every state will come together to teach the same thing across the board. This means that a students who may be in 8th grade in Florida can move to Idaho and they will be learning the same content at the same depth of knowledge. This consistency will unify the learning within our country, with a strong emphasis on skills that are needed in college and the work force.
