Bill To Void Common Core Passes Indiana House
The Indiana House today overwhelmingly approved a bill that would void Common Core standards in Indiana 67 to 26. Senate Bill 91, passed by the full Senate last month, now heads to a conference committee to resolve differences with the Senate version, as it was amended earlier this month by the House Education Committee.
The bill sets a July 1 deadline for new standards to be adopted by the Indiana State Board of Education to replace Common Core. In 2013, the legislature approved a bill to “pause” implementation of Common Core to allow time for a new review of the standards and a new vote of the Indiana State Board of Education by July 1, 2014.
