Anti-Common Core Group Collects 80,000 Signatures for ‘16 Ballot Question

WORCESTER – A Worcester-based group that is looking to put an anti-Common Core question on the 2016 state ballot has collected the necessary signatures to do so, it announced Wednesday.

End Common Core Massachusetts, which is led by Worcester resident Donna Colorio, said it submitted 80,000 certified signatures to Secretary of State William Galvin’s offices Wednesday afternoon. The group needs 64,750 to get on the ballot for next year’s general election.

The signatures will still need to be certified by the secretary’s office, which would then send the measure to the Legislature for approval.
