MADISON (WKOW) -- State lawmakers who held a series of public hearings on the national Common Core academic standards will share their thoughts and possible recommendations for changes Tuesday afternoon.
An Assembly committee is meeting to discuss the final report Wednesday, with a Senate committee also preparing a report that could be released later this week.
The voluntary standards for math and English are in place in 45 states, including Wisconsin, which adopted the standards in 2010.
Supporters see them as a more rigorous curriculum for students, while opponents say the standards infringe upon the independence of local school districts to decide what they teach.
Lawmakers heard public testimony at hearings in Madison, Fond du Lac, Eau Claire and Wausau this fall.
