NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Latest on a state panel’s work to revise the Common Core standards (all times local):

12:45 p.m.

A panel of Louisiana educators has voted to recommend a package of revisions to the Common Core education standards.

Approval came Tuesday in New Orleans. The panel’s decision sends the recommendation to the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education for a vote in March.

The panel was formed by the Legislature last year as a compromise between opponents and supporters of the multi-state Common Core standards.

The panel approved a proposal that 18 percent of the English standards be changed, and 26 percent of math standards.

Twenty-one of 26 panel members voted for the proposal. Three were absent. Two abstained, saying the standards should be tied to a requirement that teachers be provided with assessment guides and other materials before they have to start teaching to the standards.
