Concerning the Arkansas English/Language Arts Frameworks:

With their grade of D, Arkansas’s ELA standards are among the worst in the country, while those developed by the Common
Core State Standards Initiative earn a solid B-plus. The CCSS ELA standards are significantly superior to what the
Natural State has in place today.

State Standards Initiative earn an impressive A-minus. The CCSS math standards are significantly superior to what the
