Indiana's education roundtable approved new learning standards for students K through 12.

This after a months long debate over what Indiana children should learn in school.  The Hoosier State is the first in the country to drop the Common Core Standards.

The new standards proposal was created by 100 teachers and industry representatives with input from the public.

The proposal will move to the State Board of Education for a final vote on April 28th.  WFFT will continue to follow this story and have more details about these standards once they are finalized.
