11-27-13 conservatives urge governor to reject common core
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Dozens of conservatives and leaders of tea party groups from across Wisconsin are urging Gov. Scott Walker to "be the hero" and "boldly" reject Common Core education standards. The letter delivered to Walker comes after Assembly Republicans who studied the standards indicated they were not interested in abandoning them. The voluntary standards cover English and math instruction and were adopted in Wisconsin three years ago.
