The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) is currently spearheading the revision of the national standards for arts education for the first time since their creation in 1994, and this presents a significant opportunity to highlight the overlap between the Common Core’s objectives and the practices of arts-based learning. Given the central role that the Common Core standards are playing in education and school reform initiatives nationwide, it is a priority of the Coalition to ensure that the goals and objectives of the Core Arts Standards relate clearly, directly, and meaningfully to the Common Core, and that these connections are actively considered as a part of the standards writing process. In an effort to inform the work of the standards writers, College Board researchers undertook a study of the Common Core standards as they relate to arts-based learning.
The What and Why of the Core
The Common Core State Standards are the result of a collaborative effort of the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association for Best Practices to ensure that the nation's students will be ready to be productive and successful in college and the global workplace.
