Common Core Standards Are Heading to the Statehouse

Posted July 29th, 2014 @ 2:36pm

Three states have already repealed the Common Core Standards: Indiana, Oklahoma and South Caroline, will Ohio be the fourth?

State Representative Andy Thompson thinks it should be, saying "this one size fits all, top down approach has not worked in the past and it is not likely to work in the future."

Supporters of the Common Core are saying that this could be more harmful to the school districts then good.

The bill goes to the statehouse next month.

Common Core are Federal Education Standards that effect every state. If you would like to know more about common core standards you can visit their website at
