Full Repeal Of Common Core Fails In Miss. Senate

Tea Party conservatives pushing for a full repeal of Common Core protested by voting “present” on a state Senate bill they claimed fails to require Mississippi to adopt new educational standards.

The measure passed the floor anyway Wednesday by a vote of 31-16. If it becomes law, it will create the Mississippi Commission on College and Career Readiness, whose members will recommend new educational standards to replace the Common Core State Standards adopted nearly five years ago.
