The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has updated materials on its website to help parents, educators, policymakers, and the public understand the facts behind the state’s adoption and implementation of the Common Core State Standards for English-Language Arts and Mathematics.
“I adopted the Common Core State Standards for English and math in June of 2010 because they are world class, grade-by-grade level expectations that will better prepare all of Wisconsin’s children to be ready for college and career,” said State Superintendent Tony Evers. “Adopted by 45 other sates, the Common Core are supported by teachers, principals, administrators, and school board officials across Wisconsin as well as students, parents, business leaders, higher education officials, and the U.S. Military, to name a few.”
