...about what is working in our public schools.

Common Core State Standards

The Learning First Alliance believes that the Common Core State Standards have the potential to transform teaching and learning and provide all children with knowledge and skills necessary for success in the global community.

To ensure states and districts get the implementation of these standards right, LFA has called on policymakers to allow more time to identify and share best and promising practice on implementation.

This understanding ensures the required instructional alignment and supports necessary for meaningful college- and career-ready standards. It makes sure we get it right.

In this section, you will find implementation success stories and resources from our member organizations to provide the information necessary to implement the standards in classrooms and communities across the nation. Listen to our Get It Right podcasts to hear from those closest to implementation efforts. And browse the collective knowledge of our member organizations on the Common Core resources page.
