Oklahoma Starts To Repeal Common Core

Oklahoma could be the next state to rid itself from the burdens of the Common Core curriculum.

 

The Oklahoma Senate voted 37-10 today to strip the controversial educational initiative from its curriculum.  House Bill 3399 would require the state's Board of Education to draft new standards that are geared towards the state's students and not the Common Core standards.

 

According to Tulsaworld.com,

The measure calls for the State Board of Education, chaired by State Superintendent Janet Barresi, to develop Oklahoma standards. Barresi in the past has supported Common Core.

Sponsored by State Senator Josh Breechen, the bill now heads to the Oklahoma House  where the changes could be accepted or rejected. 

 

This comes just weeks after Indiana voted to repeal Common Core.
