As we have posted before, the education curriculum, Common Core, is a disaster for Michigan and our children. Luckily, the bill to repeal and replace Common Core was voted out of the Senate education committee by a 4-1 vote. Unfortunately, it appears that the Senate as a whole is not as serious as the Senate education committee about replacing this program.
Melanie Kurdys a STOP Common Core activist has revealed new details about the plan
There are STRONG indications the Repeal & Replace Common Core Bill SB 826, is going through significant changes before it is voted on by the whole Senate. We are concerned that these changes will water down the implementation of Massachusetts standards and destroy the strategy to implement the Massachusetts assessment which has been proven superior for students. As you all know, the assessment is the hammer!The process they are using is a substitute bill rather than amendments, which will make it nearly impossible for us to know what is being proposed before the vote. This is not a transparent or open process. We have requested a copy of the most current version of the substitute bill, but so far that request has yet to be fulfilled
