NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam is laying out a process for a public review of the state's K-12 academic standards in English and math.
Academic standards are typically reviewed in Tennessee every six years. But with discussion in Tennessee and across the country about Common Core state standards, Haslam says he believes it's time to take a fresh look.
In the coming weeks, a website will be available for Tennesseans to go online, review each current state standard and comment on what they like, don't like, or make suggestions.
The Southern Regional Education Board, as a third party, will collect the data in the spring and then turn that information over to professional Tennessee educators to be reviewed and analyzed.
