National Core Standards

The news is full of reports on the move to national core education standards.

I can see their argument, but what are the side effects of this proposal? Our state standards are pretty good. The testing is another issue, but won't there be a financial impact when we start revising testing standards and changing curriculum materials?

We-ell, I have seen some state standards that are sensible (thanks, Sherry), and some that look like they were written by Baron Munchausen.

If standards are sensible, then I'm all for them.
