Common Core Standards To Impact Adult EducationPosted on July 12, 2012 by MHRFAdmin
The McGraw-Hill Research Foundation released a new white paper, “Common Core State Standards: What Effect Could They Have on Adult Education and High School Equivalency Programs in the U.S.?” Authors Jeffrey A. Fantine, Adult Education Consultant and Mitch Rosin, Director, Adult Learning and Workforce Initiatives at McGraw-Hill Education, raise many crucial questions with regard to adult education and HSE. State education departments throughout the country are, for the first time, in the process of agreeing on and establishing new and more demanding educational standards for kindergarten through high school. The nationwide trends and factors prompting this coordinated rise in education standards and accountability affect adult education as much as they will K-12. The new standards are essential to help students compete in an increasingly interconnected and digital world but they will demand more from teachers, as well as from students.
