GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Public hearings to be held today to discuss Common Core standards
A public hearing will be held this morning on three bills aimed at keeping a close watch over Wisconsin's Common Core educational standards. The Assembly Education Committee will take testimony at the State Capitol. One bill would require periodic reviews of the standards for math-and-English that were adopted in 2010, plus new standards for other subjects. A second bill would prohibit schools from collecting bio-metric data from students that include finger-prints and retinal scans.
