Oklahoma Supreme Court Supports Constitutionality Of Common Core Repeal Bill

The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that a bill repealing Common Core academic standards is constitutional, rejecting a claim that the Legislature overstepped its authority by giving itself the power to draft new, replacement benchmarks for schoolchildren.

Ruling just a few hours after taking oral arguments on a lawsuit brought by parents, teachers and members of the state Board of Education, the court merely noted that it has jurisdiction and that the bill does not violate sections of the constitution dealing with separation of powers and education.
