With a statement of support from a broad coalition of higher education groups, the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers on Wednesday formally unveiled a set of "common core" academic standards that, the groups hope, could become a baseline for state expectations for what students must learn to be prepared for college and the work force. The standards in English and mathematics, which panels of college faculty members helped to vet, could, if adopted widely, become linked to college admission or placement standards in ways that could smooth the path from high school to college for some students.
