Growing Calls To Abandon New Common Core Test

Just one week after Ohio dropped the Common Core-aligned PARCC test, the dominoes began to fall in Massachusetts.

As Education Commissioner Mitchell Chester came under fire for his chairmanship of the PARCC Governing Board, the group End Common Core launched a ballot initiative to stop Common Core in Massachusetts.

The case against the test is building, as teachers and parents across the state await the decision from the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education on whether Massachusetts will adopt it.

And although they ultimately don’t make the decision on the test, local state legislators are expressing skepticism and caution about the Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness test as well.
