Alabama GRIT is a team of Alabama parents, educators, business leaders, military personnel, and other civic leaders who work together to ensure all of Alabama's children have an opportunity to graduate from any of Alabama's schools prepared for real life.
NEW! On February 25th, GRIT voiced its support for Alabama teachers in their hard work implementing Alabama's College and Career Ready Standards, based on the Common Core State Standards, on APT's "Capitol Journal." Watch here:

TAKE A LOOK AT ALABAMA'S COLLEGE & CAREER READY STANDARDS
WE HAVE GRIT! DO YOU??
I believe that every child should be able to attend a great school in Alabama that expects more from its students and ensures every graduate is prepared for life after graduation -- whether one is starting college or a career.
Alabama has a plan to meet that goal beginning with the implementation of Alabama's College and Career Ready Standards -- academic benchmarks designed to raise student expectations to higher levels, build upon the gains our students and teachers are making in the classroom, and keep our schools moving forward.
I pledge to stand with the many parents, military families, business leaders, educators, community advocates and others whose GRIT and perseverance are ensuring that our students graduate with the life skills needed to succeed in their chosen career path.
