One study written by Morgan S. Polikoff discusses the status of the Common Core initiative over the last five years. This study emphasizes how researchers and the general public are interested in assessing whether and how the standards are “working.” This study examines the state of the literature on these questions and offers suggestions for important work moving forward. The author, Polikoff, hopes that through training and modeling, we can develop a new generation of educational researchers who work to bring their important research to bear on policy and practice problems of the day.
