info written in such an ideal manner? I have a venture that I’m

The implementation is. Unless every school system in the country adopts exactly the same textbooks and exactly the same teaching methods and exactly the same assessments, the Common Core isn’t “common”. Furthermore, almost every state education commissioner and every superintendent and every curriculum coordinator believes s/he has *the* best way to implement the CCSS. Therefore, no two are the same. Having the same written standard does not necessarily lead to the same outcome because each individual interprets it differently.

NEA leadership thought (as usual) they’d be leading the pack as a primary “player” in lauding the CSSS, but (as usual) they’re behind at least some teachers in understanding the impact of the myriad of implementation strategies on their members. Now they have to figure out what to do about it.
