Fewer, Clearer, Higher: Moving Forward with Consistent, Rigorous Standards for All Students

This paper describes the Gates Foundation's beliefs regarding Common Core Standards and the need for the criteria to be “fewer, clearer, higher.” The authors discuss the criteria necessary to support state leaders as they wrestle with decisions new standards, assessments, and teaching tools are implemented. The report ends with a brief discussion of the next steps that the Gates Foundation will take to continue to support making standard real and productive.
