September 16, 2015 — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has a new website presenting the business perspective on the importance of higher standards, including state-by-state information and a toolkit to help business leaders make the case for higher standards. As a part of our Proficient Means Prepared campaign, we believe that higher education leaders can partner with the business community to jointly voice their support for college- and career-ready standards and assessments. Check out our toolkit for more information for higher ed leaders, included suggested activities, best practices and sample messages.
