Higher Expectations, Higher Achievement
College and Career-Ready Standards
Our children deserve the best public education system the state can offer, which is why the Mississippi Department of Education has been increasing the rigor in instruction and testing. Mississippi students aren’t just competing with their classmates and other students around the state for the jobs of tomorrow. In this global economy, our students must compete with students from across the country and the world.
If we are to prepare students successfully for college and the workforce, we need to set higher expectations to yield higher achievement. We need Mississippi's college and career-ready standards, which are Common Core State Standards.
