Group, lawmakers pushing to repeal Ohio's Common Core

  // Thursday, 14 August 2014 00:12 //

Hearings kick of next week in Columbus to determine whether Ohio will repeal the Common Core education standards.

Common Core is a set of standards passed to prepare students in grades kindergarten through twelfth and involves English, Language Arts and mathematics.

43 states have implemented the standards, including Ohio in 2010.

Some Ohio state lawmakers say they've heard widespread discontent from parents, teacher and communities on the standards and want the repealed.

Representative Matt Huffman of Lima and Andy Thompson of Marietta have said Ohio made a mistake four years ago in pursing the standards and their legislation would seize back state control over the process.

The group ‘Ohioans Against the Common Core' has also been vocal about its discontent with Common Core and the federal government's involvement in local education.
