The ELA Common Core Standards: The path to a better educated America?

They have been called the most radical change in American public education in the last fifty years. They have been endorsed by everyone from E.D. Hirsch to Randi Weingarten. Forty five states have adopted them. They are, officially, Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. On the eve of the introduction of these standards into thousands of classrooms across the United States, join Dr. David Steiner, Dean of Hunter College School of Education, and Dr. Mark Bauerlein, professor of English at Emory University, for a provocative discussion about how the ELA Common Core will transform our schools.
