StateImpact Indiana: Common Core

by Elle Moxley

February 1, 2013

State legislators are considering a proposal that would withdraw Indiana from the Common Core, a set of nationally-crafted academic standards adopted in 46 states. The Common Core is designed to increase the number of students prepared for college and career.  But some parents and teachers say the new English and math standards aren’t as strong as what Indiana had before. StateImpact Indiana’s Elle Moxley visited kindergarten and first grade classrooms already using the new standards to see how the Common Core stacks up.
