Shannon Glynn, Associate, Council of Chief School Officers (CCSSO)
The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), in association with NGA and other math educator groups, is working to create a communications toolkit that can be used by math educators at the local level to promote and support the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. There are many myths about CCSS that are being perpetuated at the grassroots level, and this is especially true for the math standards. Math educators represent the perfect validators for the standards and need ensure their voices are heard and they are able to combat the myths that exist about the Math standards. Their expertise and proximity to the standards is critical in providing the public with accurate information about the Common Core.
