Washington, D.C. - The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) sent a letter to both Achieve, Inc., and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), expressing support for the development of a Spanish language version of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)-aligned assessment.
“LULAC supports providing our states with the tools necessary to ensure that our students benefit from the implementation of the Common Core State Standards,” said LULAC President Margaret Moran. “Once CCSS is implemented it’s critical that they be monitored, and adequately supported, in order for all students to benefit from a quality education.”
In the coming months, states will move forward with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards. LULAC will continue to ensure that the concerns and needs of the Latino community are adequately addressed throughout the process.
