Curriculum Standards

"The rigor that matters most for the 21st century is demonstrated mastery of the core competencies for work, citizenship, and lifelong learning. Studying academic content is the means of developing competencies, instead of being the goal, as it has been traditionally. In today's world, it's no longer how much you know." Tony Wagner, The Global Achievement Gap (2008)
