Tennessee lawmakers file bill to end Common Core #stopcommoncore

Republican-led efforts are underway in the state Senate to pull the plug on Common Core in Tennessee — a move that would preempt Gov. Bill Haslam’s preferred process to publicly review the controversial standards, the Tennessean reports.

Senate Education Committee Chairman Dolores Gresham, R-Somerville, and Senate Government Operations Committee Chairman Mike Bell filed legislation Monday that would establish a Tennessee Standards Commission that would later recommend changes to the State Board of Education. It would also “cancel” Tennessee’s current memorandum of understanding regarding Common Core standards in English language arts and math.

New standards to replace Common Core, which has phased into Tennessee classrooms for the past four years, would be ready by the 2016-17 school year.
