- Some Wisconsin school districts worry about Governor Scott Walker's recent move away from Common Core educational standards.
Walker has asked the Wisconsin Legislature to pass a bill in January to repeal Common Core.
He wants to replace it with standards set by the public.
Common Core is the set of curriculum standards that specify what is taught in grade-school classrooms throughout the state.
Wisconsin adopted it in 2010.
School officials in Janesville, Milton, Clinton and other districts say they have invested time and money in creating curriculum based on Common Core.
Abandoning it will be costly for those districts.
The Elkhorn School District administrator says dropping Common Core ``would be a step backwards"
