Hearing to address future of Common Core
Indiana lawmakers will hear testimony today on the state’s adoption of national school standards.
The Common Core State Standards are under fire from critics in both parties.
The hearing will include testimony from the Indiana Department of Education and from both supporters and opponents.
Effective August 12th, Indiana is withdrawing from a national Common Core testing coalition as state policymakers reconsider the national standards and tests.
The state must decide by July 2014 if it wants to re-join the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers.
Indiana’s state board of education has voted twice to affirm Common Core.
