CCSS Overview

As the nation’s largest volunteer child advocacy association with over five million members who are parents, students, and teachers, the National Parent Teacher Association is uniquely positioned to be an influential and credible voice in advancing the Common Core State Standards.

Since its founding in 1897, PTA has worked toward its vision of making every child’s potential a reality. Ensuring high academic expectations for all students, regardless of their zip code, is aligned with PTA’s public policy priority of equity and opportunity for every child.
