For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.

Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
