The Common Core State Standards are more rigorous standards than the great majority of states had in place previously.
States are free to modify the Common Core State Standards or adopt their own individual standards, because academic standards are the prerogative of the states.

Common sense is not so common.
I want to get rid of Common Core.
The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.
Today, India is a nuclear weapons state.
