Common Core debate headed to North Carolina House floor

RALEIGH, WAKE COUNTY - A bill that would dismantle the state's Common Core curriculum for kindergarten through 12th grade is set to be reviewed by the state House Wednesday.

Lawmakers will consider the bill that would direct the State Board of Education to replace Common Core standards for math and language arts.

Those would be replaced with new rules, that would apply to all grades through high school.

Gov. Pat McCrory said Tuesday he supports Common Core curriculum, and said that testing implementation is what needs to change instead.

A Senate committee also planed to debate a nearly identical bill on Wednesday.

The North Carolina Association of Educators and the North Carolina Chamber both oppose the change.

Common Core has been used in North Carolina schools since the 2012-2013 school year.
