Common Core elimination bill heading to Governor for signature

(Associated Press) The Common Core curriculum standards that dictate what’s taught in grade school classrooms across the state are on their way out. The House approved a compromise bill, 71-34, Wednesday to rewrite the statewide curriculum to better tailor it for North Carolina students. The bill now heads to Gov. Pat McCrory; in a statement released minutes after the bill was passed, he said he would sign it. The bill repeals Common Core for the state’s K-12 standards and directs the State Board of Education to come up with new ones.

The commission would be made up of 11 members, some appointed by legislative leaders, one by the governor and others by the State Board of Education.
