Question

Is everyone using the Common Core State Standards?  

Answer

No, it was a voluntary process for states to adopt the Common Core.  Most states have adopted them with the exception of Alaska, Minnesota, Nebraska, Texas, and Virginia.  They are the states that are holding out or have developed their own state standards that they feel meet the curriculum.  The primary reason that some states have not adopted the Common Core is because they spent so much time and effort and finance on developing their own Common Core State Standards.  They did not feel like they could simply throw all of that away and begin utilizing something else.  Plus, a lot of states have their state standards aligned with their state assessments.  In order to do new standards, they would also have to create new state assessments, and that would be a costly venture.  Five states have chosen not to adopt them  at this time.
