Anti-Common Core bill passes Senate Committee

(AP) - A state Senate committee Monday passed legislation that would limit federal control over so-called Common Core standards for math and English instruction in Oklahoma's public schools.

 

The Senate Education Committee voted 11-0 for the measure Monday. The House-passed bill authorizes development of new English and math standards and prohibits the state Board of Education from entering into any contract that would limit state control.
