Expect the Best for Your Child: How to Use the New Learning Standards in Reading/English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies to Help Your Child Do Well in Grades 6 through 8
District of Columbia Public Schools
DC Public Schools has adopted new learning standards for core subjects, including reading/English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The new standards show what students should know and be able to do: (1) in each subject; (2) at each grade level; and (3) in every school. Standards tell all students that they are expected to succeed in school. This is a powerful message: When children know they are expected to do well, they will believe in themselves more and work harder. These new learning standards are among the best in the nation. They are the first step toward creating a world-class school system in the District of Columbia.
