College- and Career-Ready Standards and Assessments. Reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act
US Department of Education
To help achieve President Obama's stated goal for the country of ensuring that all students are ready for college and careers when they graduate from high school, the administration has designed a blueprint for a reenvisioned federal role in education through the reauthorization of the "Elementary and Secondary Education Act" ("ESEA"). The new "ESEA" will call for: (1) Raising standards for all students in English language arts and mathematics; (2) Developing better assessments aligned with college- and career-ready standards; and (3) Implementing a complete education through improved professional development and evidence-based instructional models and supports. The administration's proposal for reauthorizing "ESEA" will maintain formula grants to high-poverty school districts while making significant changes to better support states, districts, and schools, including middle and high schools, in improving achievement for all groups of students, including low-income and minority students, English Learners, and students with disabilities. This support will be focused on the following efforts: (1) Rigorous college- and career-ready standards; (2) Rigorous and fair accountability and support at every level; (3) Measuring and supporting schools, districts, and states; (4) Building capacity for support at every level; and (5) Fostering comparability and equity.
