Catholic schools all over the state of Wisconsin have decided to keep away from Common Core, the national education standards.
The Diocese of Superior, Wisconsin recently announced that its 15 elementary and middle schools would choose not to implement the new national curriculum. Bishop Peter Christensens decision follows that of several other Wisconsin dioceses, according to Catholic Education Daily.
In a statement, Christensen explained that while Catholic education officials should monitor the progress of Common Core in other schools, they should not be adopted.
Parents entrust their children to our schools for a faith based, morally true environment of learning while providing training in skills that ensure future success, he wrote. Therefore, the Diocese of Superior will not adopt the Common Core Standards as a whole.
