School officials against changes to common core educational standards

Madison, WI (WXOW) - -

School officials in Wisconsin are lining up against any changes to the Common Core educational standards.

Governor Walker announced this month he wants the legislature to throw out the educational standards approved by the state legislature in 2010 and replace them with standards recommended by Wisconsin parents and educators.

A story in the Janesville Gazette quoted a number of school districts in that area had come out against any changes.

Common Core is the set of curriculum standards that specify what is taught in grade-school classrooms throughout the state. It includes the statewide expectations for English and math education.

Conservatives have come out in opposition to the standards, in many cases claiming they represent federal control over local school districts.

The school districts say they've already invested time and money in adopting the Common Core standards and repealing them would represent a step backward.
