Draft of new Oklahoma education standards unveiled

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Proposed new education standards in math and English that were developed after Oklahoma scrapped Common Core standards last year are being made available to the public.
 
The standards will be the subject of a town hall meeting Tuesday evening during an education event at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.
 
State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister praised the work of educators from across the state who worked for the last year to develop the standards for Oklahoma students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12.
 
Oklahoma schools were prepared to implement Common Core standards in math and English last year, but those were scrapped by the Legislature amid opposition mostly from grassroots conservative groups.
 
The new standards are to be implemented by the 2016-2017 school year.
