June 3, 2010
Recommendations have been refined since preliminary standards were proposed earlier this year

From The New York Times: The nation’s governors and state school chiefs have released a new set of academic standards, their final recommendations for what students should master in English and math as they move from the primary grades through high school graduation. The standards, which took a year to write, have been tweaked and refined in recent weeks in response to some of the 10,000 comments the public sent in after a draft was released in March.
