- Simply adopting a new textbook, even if it’s in line with the Common Core State Standards, does not result in an increase in student achievement, according to a study released Monday by the Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University.
Experts have encouraged educators to take more active roles in reviewing, evaluating, adapting and even designing curricula. And previous research has shown that a strong curriculum can have a positive effect on student achievement.
