Located in the Office of the Governor, the North Carolina Business Committee for Education (NCBCE) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit comprised of North Carolina's corporate leaders. NCBCE seeks to ensure that every student in North Carolina graduates from high school ready for life and work in a global society.
NCBCE supports the delivery of knowledge in an effort to bring awareness of 21st century improvements to our schools and partnerships between education and businesses. Our resources provide insight into how the state of North Carolina is working to build a "future-ready" education system, how business partnerships are increasing global awareness, business literacy, and technology skills in our future workforce, and the bridge NCBCE provides in bringing the state, education, and businesses together in one common goal - To Bring the Future to North Carolina Students and Education.

An analysis of the trends from the public comments and the 3.0 drafts will be presented to North Carolina State Board of Education for discussion at the August 2009 Board Meeting. www.ncpublicschools.org/acre/standards
