Rep. Andy Thompson introduced the Common Core Repeal Bill today, HB 237. The bill would halt implementation of Common Core academic standards in the state of Ohio and prohibit the state from using the PARRC assessments or any other assessments connected with Common Core. Additionally, the bill prohibits the sharing of private student data with any entity that seeks to profit from the data or any entity outside the state with certain exceptions. We commend Rep. Thompson along with the following thirteen HB237 co-sponsors:
HB 237 has been referred to the Education Committee and we expect hearings will begin in mid-September. We will keep you posted on Action Items and the hearing schedule. This is a great step forward but shouldn’t be seen as more than the start of the real work necessary to reclaim our children and our state from the hands of federal overlords. Please pass this information onto your friends and family. Thank you for joining forces with us and demanding accountability. We each have one State Representative and one Ohio Senator; make sure your two votes command representation. Thank you and keep up the pressure!
