The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) has been adopted by forty-two states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of defense Education Activity (DoDeA). The intent of the CCSSI is to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live (Core Standards). There is limited qualitative research that focuses on the experiences of administrators of schools with majority African American students who are implementing the CCSSI. The intent of this narrative study is to understand the leadership challenges administrators of schools with a majority of African American students face when implementing the CCSSI.
