The House and Senate each passed their respective versions of legislation dealing with proposed academic standards in math and English language arts Monday.
There was heated discussion at the state Capitol, and both bills require more work.
House Minority Leader Scott Inman, D-Del City, debated relentlessly to pass the standards as they are so that they could be implemented as quickly as possible. He says time is of the essence.
But House Speaker Jeff Hickman, R-Fairview, said there are a few mistakes within them that need to be addressed first.
