Senate committee to vote on Common Core changes
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A state Senate committee is set to vote on its recommendations for changing Common Core academic standards in Wisconsin. The vote Thursday comes as Republicans who control the Legislature are considering changes to the standards the state adopted in 2010. The standards cover what students should know in the subjects of math and English. Some conservatives have called for repealing the standards, but there is no bill yet to do that. Anything introduced in the Senate may have a tough time passing. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said last month it will be difficult to pass any changes to Common Core. One Assembly bill would require legislative review of standards every six years and create a process for public involvement in writing and reviewing them.
