UNDATED (WHTC) -- The Common Core State Standards for language arts and mathematics have been the subject of controversy since they were formally adopted by the Michigan State Board of Education in 2010. State Superintendent Mike Flanagan and a representative from the education group that provided assistance in drafting the standards will go before a panel of Michigan House legislators next week. A special bipartisan legislative subcommittee led by state Rep. Tim Kelly will meet for the first time, next Tuesday, July 16th. The meeting, which is open to the public, begins at 9 a.m. in Room 521 of the Anderson House Office Building, 124 N. Capitol. Kelly said the group plans to meet about four times this summer.
