Schools must embrace and seize technology’s potential to make their learning experiences more engaging to capture the hearts and minds of students.
Community-based accountability empowers students, parents, and educators to build a learning community that honors and supports the work of students, teachers, and parents.
High-Priority Learning Standards
Learning standards must allow students to develop the cognitive and social skills they need to solve the complex problems of a rapidly changing world.
Schools must be transformed into learning organizations where only the mundane is standardized and standards are used to nurture aspirations and accommodate human variables.
Schools must authentically assess student progress using multiple and varied methods that inform educators and parents of the extent to which learning is occurring.
College & Career Readiness
An educational system guided by the principles that drive the Consortium will prepare students for post-secondary education, the workforce, and productive citizenship.
