The Illinois Learning Standards are not just about what our kids must learn to make it in college and career, but also about what they can do. The new standards focus on the development of skills necessary for success in real life like critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, and creativity. We don’t know what the careers of the future will look like, but we do know they will require key skills as well as content knowledge.
Education is more important than ever before.
The standards will help students develop a foundation of knowledge and higher order skills while in school that will serve them well when they move on to college and a career.
