In Connecticut, the adoption of standards is a State Board of Education responsibility. A standard describes what student should know and be able to do. Standards are sometimes referred to as learning standards. Standards define the goals of education- what students need to learn- not the processes of education or how schools are structured or how they operate. In recent years, a guiding principle in K-12 standards has been to clearly define what students should know and be able to do through out their K-12 experience anchored in college- and career-ready expectations.
