WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Gov. Walker would like to see Common Core repealed
Governor Scott Walker says he wants lawmakers to repeal the Common Core education standards adopted by all but a handful of U-S states. The Republican governor issued a one-sentence statement yesterday, calling on the next Legislature in January to replace Common Core with standards "set by people in Wisconsin." Walker was among several G-O-P leaders condemning Common Core last weekend at a meeting of the National Governors Association.
