Lawmaker Wants to End Common Core Curriculum in Michigan
Midland Representative Gary Glenn is looking to put an end to Common Core.
According to WNEM, the bill would replace Common Core with academic standards used in Massachusetts.
The Michigan lawmaker cited a report which ranked that state first in the nation for fourth grade reading and eighth grade math.
He introduced the legislation this past Thursday.
This is a pretty heated topic for parents who absolutely hate Common Core. It's something that's been the topic of debate for quite some time. I'm not a fan of Common Core at all and many parents struggle with it when it comes to helping with homework.
The Common Core State Standards are a clear set of shared goals and expectations for the knowledge and skills students need in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level so they can be prepared to succeed in college, career, and life.
