NC House Committee approves bill to get rid of Common Core

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -

 

Nationally developed academic standards used in more than 40 states would no longer be used in North Carolina under legislation that's cleared a General Assembly committee.

The House Education Committee voted Tuesday along party lines for the bill backed more by Republicans. It directs the State Board of Education to replace Common Core standards for math and language arts with new rules. A special commission would be formed to recommend changes to the board. Common Core would be used in the meantime.

A legislative study committee recommended the replacement after hearing concerns recently from teachers and parents who feared they were losing local control of curricula and instruction.

The North Carolina Chamber and North Carolina Association of Educators oppose the bill. The measure goes next to the House's budget-writing committee.
