A 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.
