As states and school districts struggle over whether and how to implement Common Core Standards that will ostensibly produce students who are college-ready, has anybody bothered to ask the colleges whether these standards do that? If they can't because they don't align with the actual requirements of the college courses, then why is there such an urgency to use them? If they can, will colleges and universities actually be ready to receive and further enhance these students? Will they even need the traditional introductory college courses?
