Standards

Two More States Weighing Moves to Undo Common Core

By Catherine Gewertz — May 06, 2011 1 min read

Yesterday we told you about a bill under consideration in New Hampshire that could unravel the state’s adoption of the common standards. A couple of similar moves are afoot elsewhere, as well.

A bill under consideration in Minnesota would ensure that the state doesn’t adopt the common core standards in math, and complicate any bid to retain the common English/language arts standards it did adopt.

South Carolina is considering a bill that forbids common core adoption and implementation. It seems that the bill’s authors were aware of the fact that the state has, um, already adopted the standards, so it goes on to specify that any steps taken to adopt or implement them would be nullified by passage of the bill.
