Common Core Costs Less
In report to the Kansas Legislative Post Audit Committee, implementing CCSS will cost school districts between $32 million to $60 million over the next five years, mainly to pay for new textbooks and teacher training. This is lower than cost estimates by the Fordham Institute or the Pioneer Institute.
· “The Kansas State Department of Education will probably save about $9 million over that time, compared with what it would have spent if it had developed new reading and math standards in-house
Huh - leveraging investments across states costs less.
