Common Core Decision Could Impact Federal Funding For Oklahoma

  // Thursday, 24 July 2014 15:21 //

As the battle over academic standards for Oklahoma public schools continues, districts brace for major changes in funding.

Educators worry the repeal of Common Core without a rigorous replacement standard will lead to unintended federal oversight.

It all stems from the PASS standards that used to be in place.

The U.S. Department of Education said years ago PASS was not rigorous enough, citing in part, the high percentages of Oklahoma graduates needing remediation in college under PASS standards.

Oklahoma City Superintendent Rob Neu worries he's about to lose the flexibility on how to spend millions of dollars in the district as an unintended consequence of repealing Common Core.

“I don’t know why the legislature is putting us in this situation,” Neu said.
