In this episode of the EdNext podcast, Amanda Olberg interviews Paul E. Peterson about the results of his new analysis of state academic standards. The study looks at how high states are setting the bar for student proficiency.

Earlier this month, Education Next published “After Common Core, States Set Rigorous State Standards,” an analysis of where states are setting the proficiency bar and how it is changing over time, by Peterson, Samuel Barrows, and Thomas Gift.

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunesSoundcloudStitcher and here every Wednesday.
