How do Arkansas students benefit from common educational standards?
The Common Core State Standards help ensure that all students, no matter where they live, are prepared for success in postsecondary education or the workforce. Arkansas graduates compete for jobs with students from other states and countries with more rigorous standards. Common standards help ensure that students are receiving a high quality education school to school and state to state; moreover, they provide greater opportunities to share experiences and best practices within and across states that improve our ability to serve the needs of students.
