Gov Signs Bill To Repeal Common Core Standards

Governor Mary Fallin on Thursday signed HB 3399 that repeals Common Core educational standards and replaces them with standards to be developed by the State Board of Education. While those new standards are being written, the state standards for English and math will revert to the Oklahoma Priority Academic Student Skills standards used from 2003 to 2010. "We are capable of developing our own Oklahoma academic standards that will be better than Common Core," Fallin said. "Now is the time for Oklahomans-parents, citizens, educators, employers and elected officials-to united behind the common goal of improving our schools. That begins with doing the hard work of building new, more rigorous Oklahoma standards."
