A Position Statement of National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS)

Approved and published 2014

NCSS is collaborating with the National Coalition for Literacy Education to learn about how education educators are learning and working together to implement new college and career-ready standards for literacy. As work on new literacy standards is taken up in schools across the country, it’s important that educators, parents, policymakers, and other key decision makers get a clear picture of what this means for teaching and learning in every discipline.

The National Assessment Governing Board will release the 2014 reports on U.S. History, Geography, and Civics on April 29. Michelle Herczog, NCSS president, will provide insight into findings the assessments during the NAGB webinar.
