Stopping Common Core: May Updates

Apple Core Map
On Saturday in Stop Common Core Progress Report, at Truth in American Education (TAE), Shane Vanderhart posted a list of accomplishments that have been made in stopping Common Core. He reminded us that state legislative sessions are drawing to a close. Here are items 17 and 18,  the last two in his list. Click on the link above and the link on state-based groups for further information on what is happening in your state.

  • States that have had legislation introduced this year that would either pause or repeal the Common Core State Standards: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and South Dakota.  States that are still active are mentioned above.  States that had bills die in committee (or in Missouri’s case was halted due to political games prior to a floor vote) we expect will see efforts again next session.

Earlier in May TAE posted an updated map of states fighting Common Core.
