Wisconsin Reporter - Ryan Ekvall - 9/24/2013
MADISON – We can do it better than you.
That was the message from Gov. Scott Walker Tuesday, as he called for Wisconsinlawmakers to hold public hearings on Common Core State Standards.
Walker thinks the state can replace those national standards with its own set of stronger standards.
“I’d like the Legislature to hold those hearings,” Walker said in a response toWisconsin Reporter’s question on Common Core. “And in the larger context I’d like us to be in the position where we can identify our own unique standards that I think in many ways will be higher and more aggressive than the ones they’re talking about.”
