This report, released by the International Benchmarking Advisory Group, provides states a roadmap for benchmarking their K-12 education systems against those of top-performing nations. It explains the urgent need for action and outlines what states and the federal government must do to ensure U.S. students receive a world-class education that provides expanded opportunities for college and career success. The Advisory Group was convened by three of the nation's leading education policy organizations – the National Governors' Association, Council of Chief State School Officers and Achieve, Inc. – and consists of governors, state commissioners of education, business leaders, researchers, former federal officials and state and local officials.
