As Arkansas considers a public review and rewrite of the Common Core State Standards they should realize that parents expect an overhaul, not a rebrand.
The Arkansas State Board of Education voted 4 to 2 with two abstentions to switch to ACT and ACT Aspire officially ending Arkansas involvement with PARCC.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson sent a letter to Education Commissioner Johnny Key directing the Department of Education to withdraw the State of Arkansas from PARCC.
The Arkansas State Board ruled 7-1 today to reject ACT and to keep PARCC ignoring Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s and the Common Core Review Board’s recommendation.
Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson accepted the recommendation of his Common Core Review Council to leave PARCC and use ACT Aspire and ACT instead.
