CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) -- Indiana's school superintendent headed to Clark County on Thursday, April 24, talking about instruction and Common Core.

Indiana is the only state to abandon the Common Core standards which were designed to measure students across the country equally.

Superintendent Glenda Ritz was in Greater Clark County Schools visiting Parkview Middle and Parkwood Elementary.

Ritz says even though Indiana has opted out of Common Core their students will still be ready for life after high school.

“The state of Indiana has decided to embark on having its college and career ready standards; it’s the first year we've engaged higher education and career experts actually deeming our standards to be college and career ready,” Ritz said.

Indiana schools begin their state standardized testing on Monday, April 28.
