MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Responses from nearly 100 school superintendents across Wisconsin with their feelings about the Common Core academic standards have been released by a legislative committee.
The special panel created by Republicans to study the standards released results of the four-question survey on Tuesday. 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: http://tiny.cc/9law7w
Many superintendents expressed their support for the standards, which they said are more rigorous than what was in place previously. Tea party conservatives pushed for the review of the standards amid concerns that they were too weak and amount to a nationwide curriculum.
