Legislature Announces Common Core Hearings
Families across the state are worried about the effect that Common Core is having on our schools. Are these federal standards the right thing for Wisconsin? Can we do better on our own?
The Legislature has created a Special Committee on Common Core State Standards to review these requirements and they will be traveling the state to get your opinions. Chaired by Sen. Paul Farrow and Rep. Thiesfeldt, this committee will be getting input from around Wisconsin as they find a way to improve our schools.
The first hearing in this series will be Thursday, October 3rd from 10am-5pm in Madison at the State Capitol. Additional hearings are being planned across the state, stay tuned to hear more soon.
Tell us what you think of Common Core. We are also taking your comments and will deliver the results to the committee for their review.
Be sure to stay tuned for more information, voice your opinion, and learn more about the state of our schools. We will let you know as soon as the additional hearings are announced.
Hope to see you there!
