Comments from superintendents about Common Core academic Standards


MADISON (WKOW) -- The legislative committee assigned to study the Common Core academic standards released responses from nearly 100 school superintendents across Wisconsin on Tuesday.

Republicans created the special legislative committee, which is scheduled to release its recommendations about the Common Core curriculum on Wednesday and vote on it Thursday.

Tuesday, the committee released the results of the four-question survey given to the superintendents. The committee is expected to release its recommendations related to the Common Core curriculum on Wednesday and vote on it Thursday.

The survey was sent to all 426 public school districts in Wisconsin and 94 superintendents responded. Their comments can be seen here.

Many of the superintendents expressed support for the standards, saying they are more rigorous than what was in place previously. Tea party conservatives pushed for the review of the standards, citing concerns they are too weak and amount to a nationwide curriculum.
