I feel that the purpose of this article was to discuss how the common core was being implemented in Wisconsin and how they already feel that there may need to be some tweaking to these new standards. I think and feel that this is a good thing. Tweaking standards and improving them can always be beneificial in the long run. It mentions how the prior standards were too vague and that the new common core standards create more of a critical thinking atmosphere. I agree with the article that setting higher goals and assessing those goals can make better grades and performance in the long run. Boosting learning will always be important!!
