"The commitment to a high-quality education, based on sound content standards, was reaffirmed in August 2010 when California joined with 45 other states and adopted the California Common Core State Standards: English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy). The CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy build on the rigor of the state’s previous English language arts standards, incorporating current research and input from other educational sources—including state departments of education, scholars, professional organizations, teachers and other educators, parents, and students. Also, California additions to the standards (identified in bold typeface and “CA,” the state abbreviation) were incorporated in an effort to retain the consistency and precision of our past standards. The CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy are rigorous, based on research and evidence, and internationally benchmarked. They address the demands of today to prepare students to succeed tomorrow." - Michael W. Kirst, President California State Board of Education
