Common Core = less college remediation

From Andy Smarick - Solving the CCSS ATAMO problem PDQ

"A recent Common Core-sympathetic article carried by the WSJ begins with an anecdote about a too-seldom mentioned potential upside of tougher standards: that fewer parents will need to pay for remedial courses when their kids reach college (“something parents of about a quarter of all New York students entering college now do”)."

Great article! Take a quick read.
