MADISON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A public hearing will be held this morning on three bills aimed at keeping a close watch over Wisconsin's Common Core educational standards.

The Assembly Education Committee will take testimony at the State Capitol. One bill would require periodic reviews of the standards for math-and-English that were adopted in 2010, plus new standards for other subjects. A second bill would prohibit schools from collecting bio-metric data from students that include finger-prints and retinal scans. The other bill seeks to ensure student privacy.

G-O-P Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says the full Assembly could vote on the measures next month. However, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald recently said that any Common Core bill would have a hard time passing in his chamber.
