PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] —A team of researchers from Brown University, the University of Michigan and Stanford University has received nearly $5 million in grant funding to study the impact of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, (CCSS) a much-debated set of K-12 academic standards that aims to address educational inequality in the United States.
The project, “Under Construction: The Rise, Spread and Consequences of the Common Core State Standards Initiative in the U.S. Educational Sector,” will look at how governmental and non-governmental stakeholders are responding to the Common Core.
