GRADE F means Pennsylvania includes none or less than 20% of the recommended content and should significantly revise its standards.

Survey of Standards and Frameworks
Pennsylvania does not mention the civil rights movement in its standards and frameworks. The state’s Standards Aligned System website links to a number of civil rights movement-related lesson plans, many very well written and detailed, but these are largely drawn from the greater Web.

Pennsylvania does not require students to learn about the civil rights movement. This represents a missed opportunity to set high expectations.
