Education, From The Capitol To The Classroom

Join Us For Noon Edition: What’s Next For Indiana After Common Core Departure

What questions do you have about Indiana's Common Core exit?

What questions do you have about Indiana's Common Core exit?

This week Indiana became the first state to officially exit the Common Core initiative, an agreement 45 states and the District of Columbia made in 2010 to share academic standards.

The move comes as no surprise to policy-watchers here: For months, Indiana education officials have been reviewing academic standards and writing expectations to replace the Common Core. But that work won’t be complete until the State Board formally adopts the state’s next standards next month.

We hope you’ll tune into WFIU today at 12:06 p.m. EST for Noon Edition, our weekly public affairs program. I’ll be on discussing the Common Core’s rise and fall in Indiana, as well as what’s next for schools. Other guests include:

  • State Senator Jim Banks
  • Amy Marsh of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce
  • Indiana Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction Danielle Shockey

You can listen live on 103.7 FM in south central Indiana, or tune into for the live stream.

If you can’t listen live, send us your questions: Tweet @ellemoxley or @StateImpactIN, and we’ll try to get to as many as possible on air.
