Indiana Approves Replacement To Common Core

April 29, 2014
By

New math and English standards will soon be taught in Indiana classroom’s after the State Board of Education approved the measure to replace Common Core.

The board voted 10-1 Monday to approve the standards that allow Indiana to become the first state to abandon the national criteria that had been adopted by all but five U.S. states.

Some Common Core opponents did not support the new proposal, saying they are less rigorous than the national standards.

Monday’s vote came before the July deadline and could likely end months of debate.

Local teachers will soon implement the changes into the curriculum this fall, and the standards will be used as a guide for what students should learn in each grade.
