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:
- They help parents understand exactly what students need to know and be able to do at each step in their education.
- They help facilitate conversation between parents and teachers about how to help their children reach those education goals.
- 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.
