Across the country, the NGA and the CCSSO will be using these talking points over and over again. They will say that the proposed national standards are:

1) Aligned with college and career expectations;
2) Internationally benchmarked against high performing nations;
3) Reflective of vital cross-disciplinary skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, logical reasoning, communication, and team work;
4) Fewer in scope and deeper in meaning; and
5) Clearly written and user-friendly to educators.

In Massachusetts, be prepared for them to focus on #4. Fewer they are right. Deeper they will claim.
