Huffman, Thompson Introduce Repeal, Replacement Of Common Core, Plan Hearings For August

Rep. Huffman said members have fielded Common Core complaints on the campaign trail. Rep. Thompson has been a vocal opponent of the proposed standards.

House Republicans announced Monday they will take up legislation to scrap the Common Core academic content standards and related tests, with plans to have the measure passed out of committee in August.

Speaker Pro Tempore Rep. Matt Huffman (R-Lima) and Rep. Andy Thompson (R-Marietta) introduced the placeholder bill (HB 597*), which would eliminate the standards and tests and replace them with something different that has been proven effective elsewhere in the country.
