Common Core State Standards: A New Foundation for Student Success

Tile: 1
From the Hunt Institute http://www.hunt-institute.org/ Core Beliefs An affiliate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Hunt Institute bases its work on our core beliefs: Education is the cornerstone of American democracy and must be available to all citizens. A free PreK-12 education is the birthright of every child and should be of sufficient rigor and relevance to ensure high school graduates are prepared for citizenship, college and work. Access to higher education should be available to all citizens at the most affordable price. Leaders who are endowed with the public trust have a responsibility to make informed decisions that create and maintain educational standards that are second to none in the world. Opportunities for lifelong learning are critical to sustain the nation’s economic health and the prosperity of individuals.
