After 24 years in the K-12 education space, Achieve has shut its doors. Read the statement from Michael Cohen, President of Achieve here.
Our website www.achieve.org will remain available through December 31, 2020.
Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
Achieve's national poll of voters and K-12 educators—Strong Support, Low Awareness: Public Perception of the Common Core State Standards—sought to answer these questions and found that while both the public and educators strongly support the notion of all states having common standards, there is low awareness, especially among the general voting public, of the Common Core State Standards. This webinar slide deck provides more insight. October 2011.
