CCER has always been committed to the idea that all Connecticut students deserve a great education that will prepare them for success in college and/or careers.
But right now, there’s no way to know if our kids are receiving the best education possible–because standards vary from state to state. What’s a B+ in one is a C+ or B- in another.
That’s why we are working with business, community, and education organizations across Connecticut to support high academic standards in public education through the Common Core.
We are excited about this campaign, and about the fact that these six organizations could all get together in agreement on the need to raise standards in Connecticut.
It is great to see superintendents, boards of education, principals, business leaders, and policy leaders coming together on this important issue. Fully embracing and implementing Common Core will help to ensure that Connecticut kids have the bright futures they deserve.
