Council for a Strong America is an umbrella for five membership organizations, composed of leaders from the business, military, and other sectors, working to address public policy issues. Through its ReadyNation initiative and others, the Council would continue outreach to provide policymakers and the public with information about the gap between the skills students currently attain in school and those they will need for postsecondary, civic, and employment success. The Council’s work draws attention through the megaphone of "unexpected messengers" to the need for an updated definition of college- and career-readiness, as well as aligned testing and accountability systems, all of which will foster systemic reform that strengthens educators’ ability to teach deeper learning skills.
