Partnership for 21st Century Skills - About Us: "The Partnership for 21st Century Skills is a unique public-private organization formed to define and incorporate into learning the skills that are necessary for every student's success in the 21st Century. The Partnership for 21st Century Skills brings together educators, administrators, parents, businesses, and community leaders to determine how to define and assess these skills, as well as to make recommendations and provide tools for their implementation.

The Partnership's work is supported by the U.S. Department of Education and it promotes the goals of the recently passed No Child Left Behind Act, including the more accurate and timely assessment of learning, greater accountability for students and teachers, support for the progress of all children, including special education children, and greater support for underserved populations. Specifically, the Act calls for every student to be technologically literate by the eighth grade. The Partnership will support the achievement of this particular goal by developing a specific technology literacy tool in its second year.

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills is a tax-exempt 501 (c) 3 organization.
