Gewertz, Catherine.  “NEA, AFT Partner to Build Common-Core Tools.”  Education Week.  Curriculum Matters. December 17, 2012.  Retrieved from:  http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/curriculum/2012/12/nea_aft_to_build_common-core_w.html

The NEA and AFT won an $11 Million dollar grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust to work on a three year project to assist with implementing the Common-Core including the AFT site ShareMyLesson.com

Rich McKeon, Helmsley’s education program director, said in a press release that the philanthropy “applauds the critical role of teachers and their unions in the development and adoption of Common Core State Standards in dozens of states across the nation,” and is “delighted” to support the unions and Student Achievement Partners as they develop and deliver the “highest quality” tools to help teachers meet the new standards.
