JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska officials are proposing new standards for K-12 education, including an emphasis on speaking and listening skills, as they seek to boost rigor and create more well-rounded students.
Education department spokesman Eric Fry said the proposal would overhaul the existing system. Under the current system, standards stop at the 10th grade, aligning with testing requirements under the federal No Child Left Behind law.
