• National Core Advocate Network

    College- and career-ready standards, including the CCSS, give educators an opportunity to work together and support each other— across districts, states, and content areas. The goal of the  Core Advocates Network is to engage a racially, ethnically, and geographically diverse community of educators with empowering, informative, and high-quality standards-based content that enables us to work together to provide equitable instruction for every student.
