The common core standards should be adjusted to be more compatible and diverse for students. The standards should offer more room to cater to each student's individualistic and unique learning capabilities. Because if we continue to ignore the fact these standards are doing more damage than good for students, they will be unprepared for college and will not have the necessary knowledge and skills for their future.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
