    Illinois has released their new list of the 172 separate benchmarks that kindergartners are supposed to learn.

I guess the educrats were trying to keep the size down.

    I wonder how many from the list are something parents just “aren’t qualified” enough to provide or instruct.

    Gee, their one token “member of the public” on the authorship list is a former educrat herself. Ms. Suddarth retired from the Illinois State Board of Education three years ago.
