Press Conference – January 17

The National Superintendents Roundtable and the Horace Mann League cordially invite you to a press briefing unveiling a major analysis shedding light on common school accountability benchmarks in the United States. The report, How High the Bar?, asks how well students in other nations would perform if they were held to the benchmark of “proficient” in the National Assessment of Educational Progress or to Common Core measures of “career and college readiness.” Members of the Roundtable and the League will present the findings, and a panel of educators will discuss the implications of the report.
