Common Core Hearing In FDL Draws Crowd

A chance to speak on Common Core education standards for English language arts and math packed a public hearing in Fond du Lac Wednesday. The hearing held by the Senate and Assembly Select Committees on Common Core featured speakers from across the state and nation. It was also an opportunity for local school officials. Fond du Lac Schools Superintendent Jim Sebert says having college readiness standards for the state is the right path to take. Danica Lewis, the Director of Curriculum and Pupil Services for the Fond du Lac School District, says the standards are rigorous and students will accept the challenge. North Fond du Lac Schools Superintendent Aaron Sadoff says the Common Core standards are better than the state’s previous standards that date back to 1998. The next public hearing is in Eau Claire next Wednesday and the last of four scheduled meetings in Wausau on Wednesday, October 30th.
