Goals

With the No Child Left Behind Act’s narrowly focused testing requirements still in place and the national attention on Common Core disciplines of mathematics and English language arts and literacy, it’s more important than ever for the education community to speak as a single voice about all the subjects essential to a well-rounded, comprehensive education.

The Coalition

The College, Career, and Citizenship Readiness Coalition calls on leaders to place equal value on all core subjects and physical and health education. To become college, career, and citizenship ready, students need access to all of the disciplines that support lifelong success. We must promote each of these subjects at the school, district, and state levels to make that possible.

New Coalition Promotes College, Career, and Citizenship Readiness for All

A broad new coalition, led by ASCD and joined by more than two dozen education organizations, has formed to better advocate for core subjects beyond reading and math.
