Wisconsin's Adoption of the Common Core State Standards
The Common Core State Standards for English language arts and mathematics provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to graduate college and career ready.
In 2010, the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of State School Officers (CCSSO) recognized the opportunity to clearly define the knowledge and skills that will prepare students for the 21st century workplace and will ensure students are truly college and career ready. Leveraging the expertise and experience of educators across 48 states was crucial to developing strong standards that meet the needs of all students. Working with state partners on the implementation of the CCSS also helps us to learn from one another, share free and available resources, and support students as they move from state to state.
