The Common Core State Standards outline what students should know and be able to do in English/Language Arts and Mathematics from kindergarten through 12th grade. The standards align with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully enter college or the workforce, are benchmarked to the standards of the world’s top-performing countries, and mark the first time that states share a common set of expectations for the nation’s students.
