Pence Signs Bill Voiding Indiana’s Common Core Adoption

It’s official: Indiana has pulled out of Common Core.

But what impact that move actually has on what kids learn in the classroom is still uncertain.

Gov. Mike Pence today signed into law a bill that void’s Indiana’s 2010 adoption of Common Core. At the time, Indiana was one of earliest of the 45 states that ultimately agreed to make Common Core their state standards with the goal of assuring high school graduates are ready for college or careers. The effort was led by then Gov. Mitch Daniels, and Tony Bennett, the former state superintendent. Like Pence, both are Republicans.
