A Draft Standard for Education K-12 has been developed -

A Draft Standard for Education  K-12 has been developed -

to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce.

The criteria that we used to develop the college- and career-readiness standards, as well as these K-12 grade level standards are:

 Aligned with college and work expectations;
 Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills;

 Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards;

 Informed by top-performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and,

 Evidence and/or research-based.
This is a state-led effort coordinated by the
National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the
Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
