Lawmakers Oppose Later Deadline for School Testing

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana lawmakers have decided not to push back the deadline for the State Board of Education to test new education standards required under pending legislation. House members voted 60-28 against the amendment on Wednesday. The legislation would require the state to throw out national Common Core standards currently in place and the Board of Education to create new, Indiana-specific guidelines for what students should be learning in each grade level.
