Public review of academic standards will include input from across the state
NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced the process for a public review of the state’s K-12 academic standards in English language arts and math. The process is in partnership with the State Board of Education and will include input from educators and citizens from across the state.
Academic standards are typically reviewed in Tennessee every six years. With these standards now in their fourth year, and with the discussion happening in Tennessee and across the country about Common Core state standards, Haslam believes this is the appropriate time to take a fresh look.
