Deeper Learning in Ohio

Interesting article from the NCTM SmartBreif on deeper learning at a school in Ohio.

I’m in favor, in general, of all the shifts the article talks about, but I’m confused why the Common Core is necessary to make these shifts. Is this only happening because the test is harder? Why weren’t schools emphasizing deeper learning four years ago? Why does it matter what international tests say, when teachers can do their job better?
