Local school officials react to new academic state standards

Recent activity at the Indiana Department of Education has local school administrators, teachers and parents concerned about the impact of state decisions on local students.

Indiana became the first state to withdraw from the Common Core math and reading standards, on March 24, according to the Associated Press. Standards dictate what students are required to know by content area and grade level. Indiana was among 45 states that adopted Common Core in the last few years, but some conservatives have criticized the initiative as a top-down takeover of local schools. The new proposed state academic standards are now being released.
