The Next Generation Standards will place a child's education in their own hands. The standards provide very clear expectations regarding what a student should know and be able to do before moving to the next level. The Next Generation Standards also provide for personalized learning, focusing on a child's strengths and weaknesses.

The Next Generation Standards are good for parents because:

  1. They help parents understand exactly what students need to know and be able to do at each step in their education.
  2. They help facilitate conversation between parents and teachers about how to help their children reach those education goals.
  3. They assure parents that their children have access to the same high-quality education other students receive in other parts of the state and country.
