Common Core for Military Families

Having served in the military and worked extensively on education programs for military families, I was pleased to see an op-ed by Delaware's Governor on the positive impact Common Core will have for students from military families

The National Math + Science Initiative created a program for students from military families so that the constant moving that is associated with military service would not derail their plans for participating in STEM careers.  We have had tremendous success with this program and will be in over 70 schools next year. 

Our Servicemembers should not have to worry about their child's education while they are serving this country and if the state-driven common core state standards can help - then let's get it done.
