Ohio Attempt to Repeal Common Core

Credit The Ohio Channel

There’s an effort underway in the Ohio House of Representatives to repeal the state’s use of national Common Core educational standards. It has the support of Republican Matt Huffman, who is among the House leadership in the GOP-controlled chamber.

Huffman says the national standards fail to take into account the unique needs and culture of different regions…

Huffman says he’s hoping for a vote on dumping the national standards in November. His position may put him at odds with fellow Republican and Governor John Kasich who has supported the Common Core in the past.

There’ve been similar initiatives to repeal the Common Core standards in Kentucky.
