2-20-14 academic standards-local reaction

Local educators are reacting to the latest Republican proposal that would lead to the undoing of statewide Common Core academic standards and instead give the legislature the power to approve new standards.
The Assembly Education Committee plans to vote on the Republican-sponsored measure Thursday.  North Fond du lac school superintendent Aaron Sadoff says it’s a political proposal.  "I think we are still trying to find answers for problems that don't exisst, Sadoff told WFDL news.  "I think we're going down a line and we have legislators that this has come to a point where I think its laughable the amount of resources and time that's being put in on something that's not understood."  The bill would also call for creation of a new statewide test to measure how well students are meeting standards.  That would replace a test scheduled to

be given next year that’s aligned to the Common Core standards.
