Why Students in the US need Common Core Math

It seems that everywhere I go, I either read or hear someone’s opinion regarding the Common Core standards. (As I’ve stated before I am ignorant of the English Common Core Standards, so I refrain from making any comment.) Please become accurately educated regarding the Common Core Math standards. Attached is an excellent video produced by Jo Boaler, mathematics educator from Stanford University. She clearly explains the intent of the Common Core Math standards as well as provides evidence to support its existence.
