Indiana’s College and
Career Ready Standards
Why?
 We care about our kids
 New beginning for our kids
 They move on with their lives
 They can obtain successful livelihoods in
jobs, apprenticeships, military
 So they can go on to college
 They begin their lives as adults
But in reality.....
What does that pretty little
piece of paper mean?
Not Much….
 Varies from state to state
What should it mean?
College and Career
Readiness
The statistics are staggering.
30% of high school graduates who
take the Armed Forces Qualification
Test do not pass it.

For students going to
Indiana community colleges:
$35 Million is spent on remediation.
Of those students receiving remediation,
fewer than 25% will earn any degree.
Approximately $27 million

In Indiana, the lack of College and Career
Readiness has led to a skills gap.
2.4 unfilled STEM jobs for every
unemployed Hoosier.
http://www.courierpress.com/news/2013/aug/28/no-headline--workforce/?print=1
In 2012, 54% of jobs in Indiana were classified as
“middle-skill.”
LPN
Welders
Electrician
Truck Drivers
Only 47% of Hoosiers have the skills and
credentials for these positions.
13% of these jobs will remain unfilled.
http://www.nationalskillscoalition.org/assets/reports-/2013-09_indianas-forgotten.pdf
5% of all jobs in Indiana are unfilled because
of a lack of qualified workers to fill them.
Nationally, it is 9%.

Another inherent problem with current standards
Mobility
• 15-20% of American school children move in any
given year.
• Students living below the poverty line are twice
as likely to move as those living above it.
• In 2012 16% of high school students in Indiana,
roughly 1 in 6, switched high schools during the
course of the school year.

Mobility (continued)
•
1 in 6 third graders has attended 3 or more
schools.
• These children receive very little protection
under No Child Left Behind.
• Military students typically attend 6-9 schools
between Kindergarten and 12th grade.
