Better Serving the Children of Our Servicemen and Women: How the Common Core Improves Education for Military-Connected Children
Center for American Progress
States across the country have always established their own academic standards, curricula, and achievement goals. What students are expected to know and be able to do often differs from state to state. Additionally, states with low standards may leave students unprepared for higher standards in other states. This inconsistency creates problems for children from military families, who must move and change schools frequently as their parents are reassigned. This brief report explains how moving from state to state not only has significant social and emotional challenges on these children, it also complicates their education. To minimize the strain that moving has on these children, it is critical that states adopt and effectively implement the Common Core State Standards to ensure that as students change schools, their education is consistent and of high quality.
