Haslam: Educators' involvement with standards a priority

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam says the involvement of educators in the review and development of the state's academic standards remains a priority.

The Republican governor has created a public review process for the standards, which include the controversial Common Core state standards for English and math.

On Wednesday, a proposal advanced out of a House education subcommittee that would make Haslam's review process law. It would also add an additional review committee, even though the governor's process already has several committees.

Some question the need for the additional review committee, as well as who will comprise it. The main concern is whether there will be enough educators on the panel.

In an email to The Associated Press, Haslam spokesman Dave Smith didn't specifically address the proposed committee, but he said the proposal does preserve the involvement of "Tennessee professional educators."
