(Undated) - A recent report gives Indiana all A’s for its educational standards in reading and math.
The same report says next year's adoption of national standards will enhance students' learning.
The Thomas B. Fordham Institute report provides a state-by-state look at educational standards as a way to gauge what can be expected when states adopt the Common Core Standards in the 2011 school year. Forty-eight states are on board to adopt the common core standards, a program the Obama administration has endorsed as a vital step in improving public education in the U.S.
“Indiana’s ELA standards are clear, specific, and rigorous, and include nearly all of the critical content expected in a demanding, college-prep curriculum,” the report read.
Indiana will benefit from writing examples and the development of fractions by adopting the standards, the report claims.
Kentucky scored D’s in the same report while Ohio earned C’s.
