COMMON CORE

Forty-two of the fifty U.S. states and the District of Columbia are members of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Initiative. Four states joined but later withdrew and Minnesota adopted the English Language Arts standards but not the Mathematics standards. Other states are debating withdrawal at this writing.

The Liston Group shows C2 alignment with CCSS to offer information needed to justify its purchase and use. In addition, numerous peer-reviewed studies over the past 20 years have shown high correlation between strong, school-wide character education and students’ academic achievement.

While C2’s primary goal is character development, this goal has many positive academic outcomes: Higher attendance, graduation rates, time on task, and mastery of core content.
