Thirteen national business organizations have joined together to form the BCER to help strengthen America's schools. The BCER works to increase academic achievement for all students by supporting and expanding business involvement in education at the national, state, and local levels.
The BCER supports efforts to:
raise academic standards for all students;
ensure standards reflect the knowledge and skills needed for workplace success; and
help the public understand the critical need for world-class academic standards and necessary changes needed for school systems to deliver them.
