Lillian Pace, Senior Director of National Policy, KnowledgeWorks, writes that Achieve's new publication, Advancing Competency-Based Pathways to College and Career Readiness: A State Policy Framework for Graduation Requirements, Assessment and Accountability, "is meant to drive action, making it a great resource for state policymakers, or anyone, interested in charting a practical course towards competency education." She notes, "Because the framework tackles three critically important, and very difficult, issues – graduation requirements, assessment, and accountability – this report could be a game changer at advancing the shift to competency education nationwide." Achieve thanks KnowledgeWorks for highlighting this new framework. Read her post here.
