Common Core Bills Up for a Hearing Today

-Three bills that grew out of a task force studying the Common Core academic standards are slated for a public hearing in the Wisconsin state Assembly.

While the Republican-sponsored bills are getting a hearing today before the Assembly Education Committee, they may run into trouble in the Senate. Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said last month that any Common Core bill will have a difficult time passing in the Senate.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has promised that the bills up for a hearing will be voted on by the full Assembly in February.

The bills are designed to protect student privacy, ban the collection of biometric data including fingerprints and retinal scans, and require public input and review of academic standards.
