What Business Leaders Should Know
The Montana Common Core Standards will boost Montana’s long-term economic competitiveness because students will graduate from high school with real-world skills they need to be successful in college and the workforce.
The standards reflect the knowledge and skills that students need to be successful in the 21st century economy such as problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, teamwork, research and use of technology.
The standards are higher and clearer than our previous math and English Language Arts standards and provide a grade-by-grade pathway that gives all students an opportunity for a high quality education. Rigorous standards will enable businesses in Montana to draw from local talent to meet the needs of the continuously evolving 21st century workplace.
