Why Businesses Should Support Alabama’s College and Career Ready Standards

why businesses in alabama should support college and career ready standards


Alabama’s College and Career Ready Standards: 

  • Were developed after conversations with businesses about what schools need to do in order to better prepare all students for success after high school. 
  • Give business leaders and educators a reason to collaborate in developing new programs to train students in skills sought by employers. 
  • Provide a strong foundation for Alabama’s future workforce, closing the gap between the skills employees have with those employers need. 
  • Expect more of students than the old standards, improving critical-thinking and problem-solving skills while instilling a higher level of confidence in their abilities. 
  • Make it easier on children, especially military kids, when they move – maintaining consistency in their education from state to state.
