GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Assembly panel states Common Core standards should not be thrown out
It appears that Wisconsin's Common Core educational standards will not be thrown out. Members of a state Assembly review panel suggested yesterday that the standards do more to protect student privacy. They also said the standards should get a periodic review, to make sure they're tailored to Wisconsin public schools. However, the panel did not recommend scrapping the voluntary standards adopted three years ago -- which call for stronger math-and-English requirements used in 45 states.
