11 Discussion What key messages resonated with you from the remarks of community members and parents? What are you most excited about for the implementation of Common Core? What are you most nervous about?
12 Core Beliefs Earning a living wage has never demanded more skills. This generation must learn more than its parents to do as well. All children are capable of learning and thinking at a high level. Children in Tennessee are as talented as any in the country and often capable of more than we expect. Our current education results pose a real threat to state and national competitiveness and security. Improving the skills of our children is vital for the future of Tennessee and America. Tennessee is on a mission to become the fastest improving state in the nation. Doing so will require hard work and significant learning for all. We must learn to teach in ways we were not taught ourselves. There is no recipe that will deliver a successful transition. Preparing for Common Core will demand effective leadership focused on student growth. PARCC is coming in two years. We need to use the transition wisely to make sure our students and our state are ready.
