Indiana Approves New English and Math Standards

Indiana Approves New English and Math Standards

On April 29, 2914, Indiana's State Board of Education approved a new set of K-12 English and math standards, despite several objections that the guidelines were "shoddy" and "warmer versions" of Common Core, reports the Journal and Courier. Indiana was among the first to adopt Common Core standards and the first state to withdraw from national standards. 

The standards reflect what the state expects students to learn in math and English in each grade level, according to an article in The Indiana Daily Student. Classroom textbooks and curriculum are set by the individual school districts. More than 150 educators and industry leaders were involved in the drafting, working more than 6,000 hours.
