Campaign for High School Equity to emphasize potential of common standards to level the playing field for minority and low-income students


WashingtonMany students are disadvantaged by low expectations that result from wide variability in the quality, rigor, and alignment of state public education standards. But never has it been more important than in the current economic climate to ensure that all students graduate from high school prepared for college and the modern workforce. The Campaign for High School Equity (CHSE), a diverse coalition of national civil rights groups addressing education quality and equality, will highlight common academic standards as a solution at a July 24 Congressional briefing. The organization will also stress the importance of engaging communities of color to ensure that their perspectives are included in the development and implementation of common standards.
