Resources for Policymakers & Business Leaders

Business leaders need a a globally competitive workforce to tackle the challenges of a more globally integrated economy. That’s why business leaders like the Chamber of Commerce and Business Roundtable support Common Core standards — they know that higher standards will make graduates college- and career-ready.

State lawmakers support Common Core because it is a state-led effort to raise education standards for kids in their states and across the country. Policymakers know that the combination of higher standards and local control over curriculum is a recipe for graduates that are better prepared for either college or careers.
