SHEBOYGAN COUNTY, WI (WHBL) - A couple hundred school superintendents from across Wisconsin went to Madison Thursday to share their thoughts to the Senate's Education Committee regarding how to review and change education standards in the future. Five were from our area; Cedar Grove-Belgium, Howards Grove, Kiel, Oostburg, and Sheboygan Area School District.
SASD Joe Sheehan said school leaders would not mind reviews being done more often and having more people conducting them, but don’t let standards like Common Core become politicized. Overall, let educators come up with the standards and legislators can approve them or provide minor adjustments to specific areas.
A bill that would allow more politicians say in setting education standard may not come out of that committee before the current legislative session ends.
