61% of Nevada's college freshmen aren't ready for college-level work and spend their tuition gaining remedial skills they should've received for free in high school.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were adopted by the Nevada State Board of Education in October of 2010 to ensure that Nevada students are college and career ready. These standards will become the foundation for curriculum design, instructional practice, and formative, interim, and summative assessments used at the state and local levels. Implementation will take place in 2015.
