MIAMI (AP) - Florida's Board of Education will consider proposed changes to the Common Core academic standards at its meeting in Miami.
Education Commissioner Pam Stewart is expected to present the recommendations Tuesday.
The benchmarks for learning in language arts and math were adopted by Florida and more than 40 other states. They were developed by a coalition of state leaders and establish what a student should know to be prepared for college and the workforce.
In response to critics, Florida fielded comments from thousands of teachers and parents statewide. The Department of Education has developed a list of recommendations based off those comments, most of which are minor changes.
At its meeting Tuesday, the board also will vote on passing scores for end of course and FCAT tests.
