Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards will soon fade into the state’s educational history.

“I am proud to sign HB2425 today, as Arizona can accept nothing less than the best classrooms possible for our students,” Brewer said. “Our children must be able to compete on a global stage. The era of low expectations and minimum-competency is over."
