NCEA's Director of Public Policy and Educational Research, Dale McDonald, PBVM, Ph.D., joins Lorraine Ozar, Ph.D. from Loyola University Chicago, to discuss the recently launched Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative (CCCII) on Education Talk Radio.

The national working group, of which NCEA is a participant, began the CCCII to develop and disseminate resources and guidelines to assist Catholic elementary and secondary schools in integrating elements of Catholic identity (Catholic values, Scripture, Church social teachings, encyclicals, etc.) into curriculum and instruction based on the Common Core State Standards.
