“We are proud members of the Fullerton High School community in Fullerton Joint Union High School District, and want to express our support for the 2011 law, AB 250, sponsored by State Superintendent Tom Torlakson, that requires the teaching of the 4Cs — Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Communication — in every classroom across all courses for every student.
We want an education that prepares students in the 4Cs in order to be better citizens and workers with real-world skills. Yet, according to a 2013 national study of young workers and college students, less than 40% of high school graduates say they learn the 4Cs in today’s schools that lack 21st Century curriculum.
Too many students are graduating high schools who are prepared for multiple choice tests in an essay world.
Pass the 4Cs resolution so we’ll be better prepared for college, careers, and life!
