Academic standards specify what students should know and be able to do in the classroom and serve as goals for teaching and learning. Setting high standards enables students, parents, educators, and citizens to know what students should have learned at a given point in time. Clear statements about what students must know and be able to do are essential to ensure that schools offer opportunities to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for success.
