The National Catholic Educational Association has cited in several news articles that more than 100 Catholic diocese in the U.S. “have indicated that they are adopting the Common Core State Standards and are adapting their curriculum and instructional practices to implement them effectively in schools.” However, when approached by parents and asked for the specific list on dioceses that are moving forward with Common Core adoption, NCEA officials have been unable to provide a list, admitting that no such list exists.
This is where parents must step in. Please help us in our CCSS Parent Recon Project as we seek to crowdsource the list of dioceses that are planning to adopt Common Core. What we need is simple:
- Check out the blank spots on our spreadsheeet
- Contact the diocese and ask the status of Common Core adoption (accept, reject, undecided, or other)
- Submit a comment on our spreadsheet or send an email using the form below.
That’s it! With enough parents chipping in, we will have a definitive list to make public. Thank you for your help!
