Download Putting a Price Tag on the Common Core to learn more.
It's a key question, but one without a simple answer. Fordham's latest report, Putting a Price Tag on the Common Core: How Much Will Smart Implementation Cost States and Districts?, explains how costs to states could range from $3 billion to $12 billion, depending on how states approach that challenge over the next several years, and describes different models for implementation available to states. For a primer on the report's findings check out posts on Education Week and Common Core Watch, or watch Fordham's VP for Research Amber Winkler's analysis. Or simply download the report.
Most importantly, don't forget to watch the 4p.m. EDT webcast of "Pricing the Common Core: How Much Will Smart Implementation Cost States and Districts?" This panel discussion feature's the report's co-author, Patrick J. Murphy, as well as Achieve President Michael Cohen, former Florida Education Commissioner Eric J. Smith, and former Education Department official—and noted Common Core skeptic—Ze'ev Wurman. Send along your questions for the panelists beforehand to email@example.com or tweet them with #PricingCC.
