Common Core Elimination Bill Moves Forward in NC
The House approved a compromise bill, 71-34, Wednesday to rewrite the statewide curriculum to better tailor it for North Carolina students. The legislation now heads to Gov. Pat McCrory, who promised minutes after its passage that he would sign the bill.
Both chambers had competing bills on how to change the state’s curriculum, but came to a compromise that allowed the state to potentially use some materials from the Common Core program that are effective. The Senate signed off on it last week.
