The Role of Educators

January 29, 2016

“We have a long way to go in addressing the need for excellent curricular alignment of the standards. Without the curricula, professional development is essentially unfocused.”

“We could take all the time we want without good curricula and [implementation of the core standards] wouldn’t happen. We have to have a dedication to a substantial development effort.”
