Despite previously supporting and testifying in favor of the Common Core, today John P. Humphries rolled out his plan to replace it.
Common Core has been adopted at the local level by over 400 school districts in Wisconsin.
Madison — In a livestreamed press conference this morning, Humphries stated he will devise a two year process and bring in national and state experts to develop new Wisconsin standards. Common Core has been adopted at the local level by over 400 school districts in Wisconsin, and this top-down approach would undermine that.
Below is a statement from Campaign Manager, Amanda Brink.
“While John Humphries was rolling out his latest proposal to privatize public education and bring in national experts, Tony Evers was leading a national press conference in partnership with the Aspen Institute and Council of Chief State School Officers on how to increase educational equity and close achievement gaps by working at the local level. Tony Evers has spent the last year working with his colleagues to ensure every kid gets the public education they deserve.
This work is a year in the making, and John Humphries is simply behind the curve.”
