Washington State Joins Common Core Fight

washington-state-flagA bill, SB 6030, has been introduced in the Washington State Senate yesterday to address assessments in public schools.  The bill is sponsored by State Senator Marilyn Chase (D-Shoreline), Pam Roach (R-Auburn), John McCoy (D-Tulalip), Bob Hasegawa (D-Beacon Hill), Mark Miloscia (R-Federal Way), Mike Padden (R-Spokane Valley) and Brian Dansel (R-Republic).

The bill would effectively withdraw Washington State from the Common Core State Standards and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.  This bill has bipartisan support and comes on the heels of the Washington State Democratic Party passing a resolution against the Common Core State Standards.

  1. SHANE…..Let’s hope WVA is the first state to REALLY repeal Common Core and not just shuffle the deck and put a new name on it. Tennessee has a bill too. We have 4 bills. 3 bills will provide parental rights and local control should our 4th bill to repeal common core not get passed. Even if it does the parental and local controls that will be put in place with the other 3 bills will provide protections for the next time they try to undermine parental and local authority. If you want details about the TN bills let me know.

  2. I called the representatives today. There is a good chance it won’t be heard in time. Everyone call

  3. Not good. I hope the bill fails.

    Common Core is better than the current way of teaching. No doubt. To stop it now would only hurt the kids who’ve already adapted to it.

    To those who haven’t, they should be given a choice to learn the old way.
