The Big Deal About Standards

Chances are as a publisher you are keenly aware of the importance that standards play in education.

Whether it is micro-school or private or physical books or e -r eaders, one thing is certain, standards are the foundation for student success . Initiatives such as NCLB and ESSA have made standards a critical component for educators as they are the "ruler" by which student progress is measured and provide evidence for what each student has mastered.

Since 1998, our team has become intimately familiar with the standards and how they have changed over the course of time. Just as standards are the foundation for student success, they are the core foundation of our business . Our knowledge and exper tise of the standards and movements such as Common Core, Career Technical Education and Early Childhood Education has been essential to EdGate's success. For over a decade our experts have aligned content to more than 2+ million standards in our repository. From the U.S. States to a host of i nternational standards such as Australia, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, India, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and the UK England, our team has done it all!

On that note, February is CTE Month® which is a public awareness campaign held by ACTE each February to celebrate Career and Technical Education and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country. The theme for CTE Month® 2016 is "Opportunities for Career Success" which gives publishers like you the chance to tell stories of leadership and excellence from your local CTE programs and raise awareness of the crucial role that CTE plays in readying students for careers and our nation for economic success.
