COLUMBUS, Ohio -
Forty-five states including Ohio signed off on the new education standards in 2010. Now some state lawmakers want to unwind that work because they and their constituents fear it gives too much control to the federal government.
Judy O'Hare, of Marion, said Common Core testing will become a federal mandate.
“No. 1, it is the federal takeover of our education system, we feel and know it is unconstitutional,” she said.
Richard Ringo drove from Cincinnati because he shares the same concerns.
“Neither we the people nor our representatives ever had a chance to vote on this, this is a case where the federal government said here take it and we'll give you a bunch of money and it was just adopted,” Ringo said.
