Alabama seeks to repeal “unproven, untested” common core standards


There’s been plenty of controversy already surrounding Common Core. Now, an Alabama Republican is fighting to keep the standards out of the state completely, at least until 2017.

State Senator Scott Beason calls Common Core “unproven and untested.”

Sen. Scott Beason, R-Gardendale, filed a bill Thursday that would repeal the standards until at least Jan. 1, 2017. Beason obtained 14 co-sponsors for his legislation, which he said shows the bill at least deserves debate in the 35-member Senate.

“Common Core is an unproven, untested education experiment. If Common Core turns out to be the great educational panacea, then in 2017 the state school board can adopt it. I’m convinced by that time Common Core will be falling apart all over the country,” Beason said.

Let’s hope that other states follow suit.
