Why does Bonita USD believe in the Common Core Standards?

  • Students mastering these math and English standards will be prepared for higher education and the demands of the 21st century careers.
  • The standards require students to consistently think critically at a deeper level than ever before.
  • Historically, students have learned and been assessed on skills in isolation; The standards require students to put multiple skills together to solve problems and complete work.
