Common Core Curriculum Standards

What is different about the CCSS's? Why did we have to change from the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards?
Forty-five states have now adopted the Common Core State Standards, which means that when students move across states they will be following the same curriculum, thus experiencing continuity in their education.
In addition, the CCSSs are linked closely across the grade levels. There is a clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, and each grade level builds upon the knowledge acquired in the grade before.
Every student, parent and teacher is able to know the expectations at each grade level. The aim is for students to progress each year towards being successful in college and career readiness.
