Indiana State Board approves new standards in math, language arts
Tuesday Apr 29, 2014 6:39am

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana State Board of Education adopted new academic standards for Math and English/Language Arts in Indiana public schools by a vote of 10-1 on Monday.

The adoption followed a months-long process that began last fall and included input from Indiana educators, higher education faculty, content experts and community members.

After hearing more than an hour of public comment Monday, the motions to approve the new math and English standards were made by Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz. The Board voted 10-1 for each of their adoptions, with 5th District member Andrea Neal dissenting.

Neal said leading mathematicians have described the math standards as poorly written, disorganized, and erroneous. The language arts standards are less rigorous than both the common core and previous 2006 English/language arts standards.

District 9 member Troy Albert said the challenge will be for the short turnaround with schools on the balanced schedule. He said the implementation of the new standards must begin immediately with the fewest amount of changes.
