N.C. Committee Recommends Replacing Common Core With State Education Standards

A state legislative commission proposed Thursday that North Carolina drop Common Core and replace it with a new set of learning standards for public schools.

A draft bill replaces the Common Core State Standards Initiative in reading and math with new education benchmarks to be created by the State Board of Education, in consultation with a new Academic Standards Review Commission, made up of political appointees.

The bill is expected to come up in the legislative session that begins in May.
