Every student deserves the opportunity to succeed
We are committed to helping students graduate from high school with the skills they need to succeed in college and beyond. Today, far too many students are falling short of their potential. This is particularly true for low-income students and students of color. Only 11 percent of African American students, 23 percent of Hispanic students, and 20 percent of low-income students who graduate from high school are prepared for college.
We are committed to ensuring that every student has access to an excellent education that prepares them for success. High, consistent standards and assessments aligned to the standards can help teachers and parents support students on their journey to a quality education.
