Common Core Bill Passed; Heads To Pence
If Gov. Mike Pence signs off, Indiana is poised to officially junk Common Core academic standards despite last minute drama when the bill’s author removed his name and voted no.
The Indiana Senate today voted 35-13 to concur with the House version of a bill that voids Common Core standards by July 1. Senate Bill 91 now only needs Pence’s signature to become law. Pence has expressed support for Indiana-created standards.
