Learning standards are concise, written descriptions of what students are expected to know and be able to do at a specific stages of their Educational journey. Learning standards describe Educational objectives and goals like the cultivation of knowledge, skills, work habits, and character traits of the learner throughout their Educational journey.

In addition to the above, we want to also include the following as part of the Learning Standards. We advocate that these are essential and necessary life skills to have. Broadly speaking, they are applicable skills that will help students succeed in adult life; namely critical thinking, logical reasoning, problem solving; oral and written communication; perseverance and work ethic; digital technology and media; or multicultural literacy (valuing and understanding other perspectives, races, and cultures).
