Common Core Repeal Approved
The state Senate has passed a bill that would repeal Common Core Standards in Alabama schools. CCS are math and English benchmarks that in place in more than 40 states. This standard describes what students should know after completing each grade. This also helps give students an easier transfer when they move to different states.
Senator Pro Tem Del Marsh filed the bill and he believes it’s time to move on from Common Core Education to focus on new standards. The bill now heads to the House of Representatives. If approved, this will remove Common Core academic standards from public schools by the 2021-22 school year.
