Purpose[edit]

The purpose of this page is to describe international standards for Primary Education (K-5th Grades, Elementary School) by pulling together resources from across the web and also link to resources such as curricula and individual lessons.

The goal is to lay out a map of knowledge to let parents, teachers, and students know what students should learn and to help them know whether the students learned it. Perhaps this will lead to a fully free and online curriculum.

Multiple sources of curricula will be allowed here because there are differing ideas about what should be learned at various levels, and different perceived needs in different states and different countries.

Information on standardized tests/college entrance tests might also be referenced (if distinguished from institutional standards).

Standards by subject and grade level (regardless of country/state)[edit]

Resources[edit]

Curriculum Materials from Various Sources[edit]

We only include links here to educational institutions that provide substantial details about their curriculum. Particular attention is paid to the license on the materials because the intent is to copy, remix, and republish the material. Information from Non-Free sources may be used, studied, and referred to, but they may not be copied and/or modified.

Standards from different countries are also welcome for integration.

For interest's sake, here is a ranking of public schools by state to possibly help us prioritize our search for curriculum materials.

Personal Notes[edit]

I started this page on Wikipedia after my wife and I decided to home school two of our three children (9th grade and 7th grade). You would think that with the millions of dollars spent on public education that the internet would be overflowing with good information on educational curricula. I found that was not so. This page follows from my efforts to make sense of what I found out there, such that I might have an overview of what students are supposed to learn in school, and so that I could tell if my kids had learned it.
