According to a recent report from ACT, only 45 percent of American college students complete their associate's degree within three years or their bachelor's degree within five years of matriculation. At the same time, there is a documented, growing disparity between the skill sets of our high school graduates and the skill sets required by employers. This is a cause for significant concern, especially in New Hampshire, where advanced manufacturing is the largest single component of our economy. I've listened to advanced manufacturing employers consistently express concerns about their inability to hire New Hampshire high school graduates with the requisite math skills into positions that provide a livable wage with benefits.

The Common Core state standards came about because of concern from educators and employers that we must address the need for our high school graduates to possess the skill sets necessary for success in college and careers. As a result, the new standards specify more rigorous knowledge and skills that students now need in reading, writing, speaking and listening (the English Language Arts Standards), and for solving problems in math (the Mathematics Standards).

If we begin by asking what is best for our students and dispel the misunderstandings about the Common Core, I believe the case for supporting them becomes much clearer. Indeed, who can reasonably argue that we don't want our students to graduate with the skills mentioned above?

While the standards are not a national curriculum and New Hampshire cherishes local control, can we really argue that a student living in Nashua will need a different set of skills upon graduation than a student living one town south of us in Tyngsborough, Mass.? Many students move within and between states during the course of their school careers, and certainly they graduate from colleges and Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer seek jobs in other states. Having common expectations of our graduates across state borders will support continuity in education for many students.

changes prompted by the Common Core state standards will take years to fully implement, but it is a journey that is critical for the future of our children. Nashua's students, teachers and administrators are up to this challenge.

Educational standards express what students are expected to know and be able to do. The Common Core state standards do just that. They do not prescribe a curriculum that is done at the state and local levels. In New Hampshire, the state provides curriculum frameworks, while local school boards approve local curriculum, and instructional strategies are generally left to the discretion of our teachers. None of that will change with the adoption of the new standards.
