Challenges to Common Core State Standards Implementation: Views from Six States
Smith, Joanna; Thier, Michael
NASSP Bulletin, v101 n3 p169-187 Sep 2017
The implementation of the Common Core State Standards has posed a number of challenges for school leaders. This study applies a policy implementation conceptual framework to analyze data gathered from 46 interviews in six states. Findings suggest the existence of multiple barriers to Common Core State Standards implementation. To promote implementation, states need to increase local capacity, build will to implement, and engage in information campaigns that promote the Common Core beyond an audience of educators and to the public at large.
