Catholic education scholars have generally expressed skepticism that the standards are rigorous enough for Catholic schools, which tend to perform significantly better than their public school counterparts.

That is probably pretty accurate.  My daughter attended a catholic school up until last year.  This year she's in a public school in NY that adopted common core this year and so far she hasn't had any real problems with it; much of the work is in fact closer to some of the work she did last year.  So, just another case of catholicism being good for ya.
