SB 64 – A Bill Preventing Adoption of Further National Standards Passes House

SB 64, the bill that will prevent the Board of Education from adopting any further uniform national standards for two years, has passed the House of Representatives. You can read the full text of this bill here. This bill also requires four public hearings before any content standards can be adopted. This bill does not affect any standards the state has already adopted. It does not get rid of the Math and  English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.  All that is required now is the governor’s signature. Thank-you all for your work on this issue.

  1. I thought the science standards had not been approved. As well the social studies/history ones. And now technical too? Seems like they are all included. I remember the science ones being called Next Gen…
    So, under the umbrella of Language arts, these other segments are included. Hmmmm
    If that is the case, what is left that we are halting?
