The Missourian reports that Columbia Public Schools, Missouri, are in the process of developing and aligning their curriculum to support the implementation of the Common State Standards. Rock bridge teacher Deborah Tucker says, "The Common Core standards will vertically align the district. This way...teachers will know more certainly what students have learned in the grade before. Any time teachers are on one page is a benefit to the students."
