The Indiana Senate Education Committee voted 7-4 to HALT implementation of the Common Core in Indiana. The bill requires a state-led process to vet the Common Core standards and come up with the best practices for Indiana students. This bill still needs to pass the full Senate and House.
This legislation is strong. It calls for the State Board of Education to do what it failed to do in 2010 when it adopted the Common Core. There will be a cost analysis, comparison of former standards to Common Core and input from the educators and parents who use the standards.
Thank you to the many people who have helped this effort and attended our rally and hearing.
PLEASE continue to call all state legislatures and voice your support for SB193! 317-232-9400-Senate, 317-232-9600-House
IT IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
