South Carolina Drops Common Core Education Standards   Leave a comment

Too big to be an insane asylum, too small to be its’ own nation….yeah, that’s South Carolina in a nutshell:

South Carolina became the second state to drop the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) last week after Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bill calling for the state to develop its own educational standards. But many schools in the state had already begun implementing Common Core standards — and they were getting positive results.

The bill allows schools to continue with the Common Core standards for one year but requires the state’s Department of Education and independent, non-partisan Education Oversight Committee to work on a new set of standards for the 2015-2016 school year. It comes two months after Indiana dropped the Common Core, citing lack of control over the standards though drafts of the Indiana standards copied the standards word for word.(Think Progress)
