State Board Approves Revised Common Core Standards
Proposed regulations supported by Governor Corbett to require Pennsylvania's public school students to achieve at tougher academic standards in public schools before they can graduate are past a key hurdle.
The State Board of Education voted 13-4 today to approve what's being called the Pennsylvania Core Standards and its associated graduation component. Students in the class of 2017 would be the first to have to demonstrate their understanding of the instruction in three subject areas to get a diploma.
The three subject areas are literature, biology and algebra. Students either must pass a test in each subject area, or successfully complete a project under the guidance of an instructor. The proposed regulations still need approval from a separate regulatory body appointed by lawmakers and the governor.
