The goal of this legislation is to repeal the unproven, nationally driven Common Core standards and assessments in Michigan. It is written to require the use of evidence based, best practice standards and assessments while respecting and encouraging local school district leadership in academic educational practices. The legislation requires all changes to standards and assessments be approved by the Michigan Legislature, to ensure a more transparent process.
