The nation has moved toward Common Core Standards, although not all of the States has not adopted the Common Core Standards. By 2009, Common Core Standards, which stated that “these educational standards are for kindergarten through twelfth grade in English language arts and mathematics to ensure that students graduate from high school prepared to enter a two or four-year college programs and be able to use the skills in the workforce. In the early 2000s, every state had developed and adopted its learning standards, which specify what students in grades 3-8 and high school should be able to do when those students reach each grade level.

After receiving the adoption, the Department of Education began working with the local school districts and school to implement the standards in the school. Many school systems are trying to make sure that they are doing what they have to do to make sure that the students are learning what they need to learn in each grade level.

As an educator I think that it will be a lot of students from this generation and the future generation will drop out rate will increase because of these standards. The standards that Mississippi adopted will not help our children because some of the students are still confused about these rules and how the teachers are teaching them. I think that Mississippi should have done some work or thought about the students
