This report is on the 2010 statewide survey conducted by the Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy of superintendents, charter school leaders, and principals to gauge the extent to which they support the integration of 21st century skills into public education.

In an increasingly complex and global economy, the knowledge and skills required for students to be successful in college and beyond has deepened. Many schools argue that providing students with a broader set of skills that will enable them to thrive in the 21st century-such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and creativity-is vital. Even so, others maintain that students must continue to focus solely on mastering basic reading, writing and mathematics skills.
