California Department of Education Standards
The California Department of Education states that "Standards-based reform involves establishing effective procedures for assessment, instructional improvement, and accountability designed to ensure that every student achieves to state standards." Standards have been adopted for five core curriculum areas: English-language arts, mathematics, history-social science, visual & performing arts and science. From now on high school students must pass an examination, based on these standards, in order to graduate. All K-12 instructors are encouraged to develop lesson plans based on these standards.
