Common Core is a program in which the federal government will define the curricula and the academic standards for each subject taught in every school district in states that have signed onto it. To date, 46 states have adopted Common Core standards, including California. Common Core standards represent about $1.6 billion in new unfunded mandates in California alone. Questions and answers will follow.
