Group to Rate States' Progress on College and Career Readiness
How would California fare under President Obama's campaign to tie Title I eligibility to college- and career-ready standards? How might Florida stack up? Or Texas?
An upcoming report from Achieve, Inc. might give all of us an idea.
On Monday morning, Achieve will issue its annual report on states' progress toward raising academic standards and the requirements necessary to earn a high school diploma. It's the fifth such report to come out since the Washington-based group launched its American Diploma Project Network to improve and align standards toward college- and career-readiness in 34 states.
Achieve, of course, is also an integral part of the initiative to write common academic standards in reading and mathematics that states can voluntarily adopt. So far, 48 states have signed onto the effort, though whether that many ultimately adopt the standards is far from a sure bet, especially if the feds get too involved.
