NC House votes to replace Common Core

  // Tuesday, 15 July 2014 08:48 //

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Common Core curriculum standards that dictate what’s taught in grade school classrooms across much of the United States are on their way out in North Carolina.

The North Carolina House approved a compromise bill, 71-34, Wednesday to rewrite the statewide curriculum to better tailor it for students in the state.

The bill repeals Common Core for the state’s K-12 standards and directs the State Board of Education to come up with new ones.

A new standards advisory commission would be formed to make recommendations to the board.

Common Core, which schools began testing two years ago, would remain in place until the new standards are completed.

The curriculum standards were approved by more than 40 states. But North Carolina, along with a few other states, received complaints from teachers, parents and conservative advocates that the standards are causing confusion and leading to the use of curriculum that is age-inappropriate.
