520 |aThis first issue of "Blueprint" focuses on standards that states have adopted to delineate what students should know at each grade level of the K-12 system. Textbooks, teacher training, professional development, and assessments are built upon education standards. To generate information that will help state leaders improve their standards and contribute to discussions about sharing standards among states, the Hunt Institute commissioned a study from the National Research Council (NRC) of the National Academies. This issue summarizes the NRC's initial findings, which include: (1) Standards vary greatly in what they expect of students from state to state; (2) State standards are not consistently challenging between subjects or between grade levels; and (3) Students are asked to study some of the same material year after year. Although standards will not of themselves transform education and ensure that all students are prepared for the global economy, standards help state and local leaders, teachers, schools of education, and textbook and test publishers align their efforts to improve the educational experience of all students. ["Blueprint" is the policy primer of the James B. Hunt, Jr. Institute for Educational Leadership and Policy. Each "Blueprint" will focus on a critical issue in education policy, highlighting key research for policymakers and prompting discussion of solutions within states and across the nation.]
