MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says changes to the Common Core academic standards will be “difficult”.

Changes to the standard has become a hot topic for debate at the state Capitol, with some lawmakers calling for a repeal.

Fitzgerald, a Republican, says the Senate will likely vote to review the standard, but the votes to change or repeal are not there.

Advocates say Wisconsin schools have already spent $25 million to implement the Common Core standards.
