"Catholic Is Our Core explores the controversial Common Core State Standards and concerns about their potential impact on Catholic schools and students. The site is a project of The Cardinal Newman Society, which promotes and defends faithful Catholic education and sponsors the Catholic High School Honor Roll. The Newman Society is committed to helping Catholic families, educators, and Church leaders better understand the Common Core and protect the extraordinary legacy of Catholic schooling."
Common Core is an issue of extreme importance, not only because of its impact on a changing education system, but for its potential societal impact for decades to come. Homeschooling and private schools are not necessarily immune to these changes and influences.
Please visit The Newman Society's Catholic Is Our Core site for their Parent Guide to Common Core, all the U.S. Bishops' statements, and up to the minute news and materials on this issue.
