I’ve been hearing about Common Core for years. Long before I had a school age child, I started hearing bits and pieces over social media, then on parenting blogs, and then via more traditional news sources.

As elementary school loomed on the horizon and I realized that 40 states had already adopted Common Core standards, I knew I should get busy and learn more.

While I knew that setting the bar higher for educational standards in all schools and using better tests to assure that students were reaching those standards would place students on the road to success. It was also clear that there is an adjustment period. If I could get prepared and informed, I would be better able to help my child and have more productive conversations with his teachers.

Finding a place to get sound information and reliable resources was my priority. Fortunately, I found a great one! Free help is available at Be A Learning Hero.
