State education board seeks input on newly revised standards
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee State Board of Education is seeking feedback on newly revised K-12 math and English language arts standards.
The Leaf-Chronicle reports (http://leafne.ws/1klPf9u ) the board launched a new website in late October to give the public its first opportunity to offer input on standards that were recently improved by state educators after previous public input.
In a statement, the state board says the standards will be available for online feedback through mid-November.
The board says the standards were developed by "expert educator advisory teams" during the summer, and set "grade-specific goals that exemplify what students" should know and be able to do by the end of a certain grade or course.
Once the data is collected from the public, it will be aggregated and sent to the Standards Recommendation Committee.
