Common Core State Standards
describe the knowledge and skills in
English language arts and mathematics
that students will need when they graduate, whatever their choice of
college or career. These sets of standards define the knowledge and
skills students should have to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing,
academic college courses and in workforce training programs. The
standards are based on the best national and international standards,
giving our students a competitive advantage in the global economy.
This state-led effort is coordinated by the National
Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the
Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
