Mass. Forum to Ask What Is Meant by “College and Career Readiness”

The Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy and the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education will hold a forum on “Defining and Assessing College and Career Readiness” on Tuesday June 14, at 8:30 a.m. at the Seaport World Trade Center Boston.

“While the goal of the previous Massachusetts State Curriculum Frameworks was to ensure students’ proficiency in specific disciplines,” says the Rennie Center in its forum overview, “the goal of the new Common Core State Standards is to ensure that all students are college- and career-ready. Yet, to date, there has been no clear, statewide definition of college- and career-readiness.”

Speakers will include: Mitchell Chester, commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education; Richard Freeland, commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education; Robert Schwartz, academic dean at Harvard Graduate School of Education; David Mancuso, vice president of external affairs at AT&T; and a panel of students and teachers.
