The challenge
The challenge.

Unlike mathematics, secondary literacy is not a discipline. It is “homeless” in that it belongs to everyone and no one. Literacy is used in secondary classrooms, but it is not taught in a systematic way.


The opportunity
The opportunity.

Having a set of common standards also lays the groundwork for developing assessments aligned with those college-ready standards and for developing teaching tools that are aligned with both the standards and the assessments.

It is a mountain of work, but it’s work that is essential for creating a system of education that is cohesive and coherent.
