If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard on the Twittersphere from folks who say we need to eliminate CCSS, and when I ask why, I’m told because the tests are just too much, too hard, too something, well, I’d have a really big bag of nickels.

Sometimes, standards are just standards. And this Infographic from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation reminds us of what standards, curriculum, and assessment mean, and how they work together.
