Final draft of new education standards released

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The final draft of Indiana's proposed education standards is available online for public viewing.

The state Department of Education on Tuesday morning released the proposed guidelines for what students should learn in each grade.

An education panel including Gov. Mike Pence, education officials, business leaders and teachers is set to vote Monday on whether to endorse the new math and English benchmarks.

The State Board of Education has until July to meet a 2013 legislative mandate to replace the national Common Core standards.

Indiana became the first state to drop those standards this March after critics called to replace them with a more rigorous model created in the state.

The draft standards are available at the Department of Education website, although the public comment period is over.
