Common Core, Eureka Math shake up Louisiana classrooms

Jessica Williams quotes me in her article, “Common Core, Eureka Math shake up Louisiana classrooms” from March 13, 2015.   The article talks about the difference between the Common Core State Standards and curricula that satisfy the Common Core State Standards.

Here’s a quote from her article:

Still, Common Core and Eureka aren’t identical, Munson said. Standards are guidelines for what children should learn and know; curriculums are a way to get there. “Do they meet the standards? Yes,” Munson said. “But they are far from the same thing, and they’ve never been the same thing.”

Jessica Williams has a “nothing but the facts” reporting style that I like and appreciate very much.  She can be followed on twitter at @jwilliamsNOLA.
