The Common Core Effect on Colorado

Each and every year teachers are required to reevaluate their curriculums, to ensure that they are relevant and competitive. In order to stay competitive in today’s electronically savvy world, students find themselves completing more electronic classroom assignments. The vast majority of these assignments utilize audio, meaning that educational headphones are required.
