Military Families Need Common Core

Great article on how military families need common core state standards. I was in the military and seeing families try to figure out schools every 2 years is almost ridiculous and stress we do not need for our military families.

It is what drove us to create an Initiative for Military Families to improve High Schools around our military bases. When we hear military leaders talk about what it means for Servicemembers to have our programs on their bases, we know there is one less thing to worry about in their next move.

When a student from a military family moves from one city to another it shouldn't take them months to figure out what class to to go in. Common Core gives our military families the confidence that no matter where they send their kids to schools, they will get the same level of rigor in class.
