National PTA recently released a Common Core video series to educate parents on the standards and empower them to support the transition at school and home.
The series features 14 videos—developed in partnership with the Hunt Institute—to dispel the myths and provide accurate information about Common Core. The videos also provide various perspectives from educators, administrators, PTA leaders and others on the positive changes they've seen with the standards.
The series begins with "The Need for Improved Student Outcomes," a brief overview of the Common Core State Standards. Watch Now

PTAs can use this video series to learn the steps they should take to effectively advocate for the Common Core standards in their communities and states.
Watch the videos and share them with PTAs and families. It's critical that we raise the bar in all schools and remain committed to ensuring all students graduate prepared to succeed.
