State education leader Michael Kirst expects initial test score decline under Common Core

Though California has embraced new Common Core State Standards so far, parents and educators may feel differently once students produce lower test scores later this year, said Michael Kirst, president of the state Board of Education. He expects an immediate dip in test scores as students take Common Core tests for this first time this spring. He said, however, he expects scores to rise in subsequent years as teachers and students are more prepared.
