JFC Approves New Test Protocols in Wisconsin, Limits Adoption of Common Core Standards in the Future | MacIver Institute

MacIver News Service | May 29, 2013

[Madison, Wisc...] Wisconsin is still on the path to adopting Common Core State Standards in reading and math when new standardized tests are instituted in a few months. However, any other initiatives that would have relied on Common Core will have to wait.

The Joint Committee on Finance approved a motion that would ensure that the state takes a comprehensive look at Common Core based initiatives in the future. Representative Dean Knudson (R-Hudson) called the plan a way to "hit pause" on the adoption of these standards while the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) can fully research how the oft-debated program will effect the state's schools and students.

DR: This is extremely disappointing and continues our Repbulican leadership's pattern of doing the very minimal amount of reform possible.  We obviously will all have to contact our representatives and let them know that we do not want Common Core in Wisconsin.
