The Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a sponsor and leading partner of the Common Core Coalition, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of education in Nevada. These standards, formally known as the Nevada Academic Content Standards based on Common Core, have been developed by the nation's top educational experts, classroom teachers, administrators and business leaders to improve existing state standards and produce graduates better prepared for success in the work place or in college. Their continued implementation is predicted to reduce rates of college remediation, bridge the skills gap and increase Nevada's international competitiveness.
Decisive action is needed to improve Nevada's schools. It is critical that we maintain the course and give Common Core the opportunity to succeed. Our children deserve it. Their future and the future of Nevada's economic competitiveness depends on the choices we make today.
