What Kentucky Can Teach the Rest of the U.S. About the Common Core

Judges’ Comments

“The article did a good job going behind the scenes on an issue. The classroom instruction examples were well-written and helped illustrate how and why Common Core is different. I also enjoyed the variety of teachers and schools visited across the state.”

“A well-done piece that examines Common Core in action from several vantage points. The opening drew me in and held my attention. It had a national feel to it even though the headline focuses on Kentucky. Very good.”
