Article Assesses the Costs of Common Core

The Maryland Reporter has released the third in a series of articles analyzing common core in Maryland. Part 1 focused on Common Core’s development, Part 2 looked at what the new standards meant for Maryland public school systems, and Part 3 looks at how the standards are working in Maryland and what they will cost.

As described in the article,

When Maryland adopted Common Core in 2010 it was awarded a four-year, $250 million federal grant, under President Barack Obama’s Race to the Top initiative. Some in the education industry argue that the grant should have covered some of the $100 million estimated IT transition costs, but current Race to the Top funds have already been allocated to other needs.
