Common Core bill dies in North Dakota House
Tuesday, February 7, 2017
It was deja vu on the North Dakota House floor Tuesday as proponents of the elimination of Common Core were delivered a setback for the second consecutive session when lawmakers rejected a bill that would have opted out of the standards.
The defeat of House Bill 1432 comes two years to the week of the defeat of a bill to withdraw from the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium during the 2015 session. The consortium is a collection of states that developed a standardized test which students take each spring to measure their ability to meet Common Core standards.
