|Will a national common core help us to be more competitive in the world of the future?|
The Common Core mathematics standards succeed in being both mathematically coherent and grade level appropriate. Overall, they are the best standards that I have seen in the past twenty years. If we can design a professional development program of the same caliber to go with these standards, then our nation will be making a substantial first step towards educational excellence in mathematics.

I liked this quote. I think there are many websites out there that will help us implement the core. I have found so many resources in teacher blogs and stuff on youtube. I think it is actually the professional development of the future. A cool website that spells the core out nicely I found HERE at Common core maps.
