Md. backs common academic standards
Maryland became on Tuesday one of the first states to endorse new academic standards for reading and math instruction as part of a national movement to create common expectations for the nation's public school students.
It is a move that will touch every student in every state and require new teacher training and standardized tests.
The new common core standards for math and reading are a key part of President Obama’s efforts to improve public education, and will shape what is taught from kindergarten to high school. The country currently has a patchwork of standards and tests of varying quality.
