States Reconsider the Common Core

Given the financial incentives from the federal government, it was not surprising that the majority of states, many of which were cash-strapped, adopted the Common Core Standards. Now that many of those incentives have fallen through and the states have had time to digest the implications of the standards, there appears to be a counter-move to abandon them.

Several states, including New Hampshire, South Carolina, Minnesota, and South Dakota, are considering legislation that would modify the impact of the standards and return control of education back to the states.

Texas one of the states that never adopted the federal standards is considering legislation that would ensure that national standards could never be adopted.
