A STATEMENT FROM THE GOVERNOR — March 10, 2010

Saint Paul – The following is a statement from Governor Tim Pawlenty regarding the draft K-12 education standards of the Common Core State Standards Initiative released today by the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association.

“The math portion of the draft K-12 education standards unveiled today would water down Minnesota’s rigorous standards that require students to take algebra by eighth grade. In a hypercompetitive world, Minnesota should not adopt less rigorous standards than we currently have in place.”
