Governor Fallin signs legislation which ends Common Core State Standards in the State of Oklahoma.
KOSU’s Michael Cross reports educators now wait for new standards from the State Department of Education.
Governor Fallin signed House Bill 3399 to repeal and replace Common Core with new standards to be developed by 2016.
Fallin told reporters at a news conference late yesterday that everyone will have an input in Oklahoma education, “Superintendents, educators, parent, public policy officials, Superintendent of Education, employers, citizens.”
Common Core State Standards were becoming divisive recently as some called it an overreach of the federal government.
Stand for Children, an Oklahoma group supporting Common Core called the move by Fallin not only disappointing, but dangerous.
