For common core my understanding is that the states were originally in control so to speak of education in each state. Under common core the federal government will be in control of education. Each state will operate their education system exactly the same way. Do, if you move from one state to another your kid will be getting the same education...that's the idea. There is a lot of new paperwork and curriculum involved for teachers and students. A lot of new testing involved for students to check that this is taking place and students are learning what they should be learning. A lot more is being expected of students earlier than it was grade-wise than in years prior under common core. Increased # of homework hours for students...that sort of thing. Maybe that helps some of you. Maybe not.
