During this session, we heard from several leading voices about steps they are taking in their states to make the college- and career-ready agenda a reality on the ground.

          Recognizing that our society is more mobile than ever, that students moving from place to place were encountering difficulty with transition from one school to another, and that too many students were graduating from high school unprepared for work or needing remedial college courses, the National Governor's Association, the Council of Chief State School Officers, and Achieve, a non-profit educational organization, came together to try and address these challenges. They hoped that through development of a set of rigorous modern standards it would help the mobile population and raise America's competitiveness on a global scale.
