State Legislators Get Ready To Decide On Common Core

The Republican leaders of the General Assembly want Indiana to scrap the Common Core education standards.

They instead would like the state to adopt its own guidelines to prepare students for college and careers.

House Speaker Brian Bosma of Indianapolis and Senate President David Long of Fort Wayne have said that is the direction they will try to take the Republican controlled state legislature in next year.

The Common Core standards were established by governors and state school chiefs to create a shared set of goals.

Indiana “paused” its implementation of Common Core this year while a legislative study committee examined them.

45 states adopted Common Core and now several are looking at dropping the plan.

House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, said most Democrats support Common Core.
