The Common Core Standards are going to impact education significantly. Some of these impacts will be positive and some will be negative. There are many pros and cons of the Common Core Standards. Administrators, educators, parents, and even students need to examine these pros and cons so that they can be prepared for the CCSS. I believe that the Common Core Standards will be the most significant shift in education history. However, they aren't without controversy and it will take at least a generation of students to see their true value as well as their flaws.
