On Monday the Education Roundtable approved new Indiana education standards to replace the national “Common Core” education standards. Indiana Governor Mike Pence called the new standards, “uncommonly high” and were written by Hoosiers for Hoosiers, crafted through a transparent process that engaged more than 150 educators and academics who contributed more than six-thousand hours to their development. Opponents say the new education standards do not differ much from Common Core.
The new Indiana math standards include trigonometry, finite math, probability and statistics, pre-calculus and calculus. A vote on the new standards by the State Board of Education will take place on Monday, April 28th.
