Standards and Accountability
We support high quality learning standards for K-12 schools as well as rigorous state assessments aligned to the standards. Ohio should maintain high expectations for all schools and students—as reflected in graduation requirements, the third-grade reading guarantee, and more—and must communicate honestly back to students and families about college and career readiness. We support smart accountability systems and metrics that accurately prioritize proficiency as well as progress, and that accurately identify schools and districts for intervention as well as recognition.
