College Leaders Sign On To Support Common Core Educational Standards

More than 200 higher-education leaders have created a new organization to voice their support for Common Core, the controversial state-based educational-standards system.

Members of the Higher Ed for Higher Standards coalition announced on Tuesday their intention to reverse anti-Common Core sentiments in their respective state capitals, as well as to work toward the successful adoption of Common Core standards. Members of the group hail from more than 30 states and consist mostly of administrators at public colleges and universities.
