Ind. teachers asking Ritz to support Common Core

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A group of Indiana teachers is asking School Superintendent Glenda Ritz to support national Common Core education standards.

Members of the group Stand for Children planned to deliver a letter supporting Common Core Tuesday morning to Ritz's Statehouse office. The state has halted implementation of the national education standards pending a review.

State lawmakers signed off on a "pause" implementing the Common Core standards this year. They will review them this summer. The move reflected a growing backlash nationwide from conservatives who see the education standards interfering with local control of education.
