Just how effective are the Common Core State Standards?

A new infographic wonders how effective the Common Core State Standards will be.

With all the hype about the Common Core State Standards, it’s easy to forget that some states have decided not to adopt the standards–plus, some adopting states are now re-evaluating their decisions. Now, a new infographic questions some of the basic tenets of the Common Core State Standards.
