Tennessee Gov. Haslam Pushes Common Core Review to 2015 Session

Gov. Bill Haslam has laid out a process for Tennesseans to review and comment on Common Core in the state, putting flesh to what he has said will be a “full vetting” of the controversial academic standards. But the plan is to produce recommended changes to Tennessee’s standards by the end of 2015. That pushes the timeline well past the next legislative session, even though many Republican lawmakers are eager to roll back Common Core right now.
