High Standards for All Students
California’s economic future will be bleak if our kids don’t learn the skills and knowledge necessary to compete in the global workforce. That’s why it’s essential that our students build a strong foundation in core academic skills.
Yet rather than work to help all kids meet California’s academic standards, opponents battle to lower the bar. In contrast, EdVoice believes that all students can succeed and fights to preserve high expectations for our kids.
But that does not mean it’s easy. EdVoice fights to ensure California’s school accountability system measures achievement of our rigorous standards and that students are assessed early and often enough to get them help when it can have the greatest impact. At the same time, EdVoice works to deliver high quality textbooks to our classrooms and to ensure school leaders and teachers are equipped to help students master the content.
