Document Number: 10843State Education Agencies' Views of the Federal Role - The Common Core of State Standards (CCSS) still faces some resistance largely due to the perception that they are federally related or controlled, though the initiative was launched by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. Still, most deputy state superintendents polled said they would welcome federal help in implementing the new, rigorous standards, and they didnít see pockets of CCSS opposition as a looming problem. Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act could help or hinder states in getting federal help with implementation. (Diane Stark Rentner, Center on Education Policy, July 2013)...
