Bill to remove Common Core moving through Senate

LANSING — Another piece of legislation that hopes to remove Common Core standards from Michigan’s educational curriculum is making its way through the State Senate.

Senate Bill 826 passed through the Education Committee on Tuesday. According to a Senate Fiscal Agency analysis, the bill would amend the Revised School Code to terminate all plans, programs, efforts, and expenditures relating to the implementation of Common Core standards. It would also prohibit the State from adopting any other national or multi–state consortium standard.

Another bill with a similar aim was introduced in the House in early March.
