Over the course of three sessions, the 2012-2013 NYU Steinhardt Education Policy Breakfast Series will examine the Common Core Standards. This next session will focus on how achievement of the Common Core Standards will be evaluated — among students, teachers, and schools — and the challenges that will be faced. Susan Neuman, NYU Steinhardt professor of teaching and learning and author of “Give Children a Fighting Chance,” will moderate the panel discussion.

The first installment, on Nov. 30, featured John B. King, Jr., New York State Education Commissioner and Shael Polakow-Suransky, senior deputy chancellor at the New York City Department of Education and discussed current implementation of the curriculum.
