As states move closer to implementing the Common Core State Standards, some are expected to reconsider the standards because of the cost and process of training teachers, says Michael Horn, co-founder and executive director of the nonpartisan think tank, Innosight Institute. Officials in Alabama have withdrawn from the testing consortium associated with the common core, and voters in Indiana last year ousted education commissioner and common core supporter Tony Bennett. Horn says he expects more states to "fully exit" the common core in coming months.
