JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. Both chambers of the Missouri legislature have passed a bill to end the states involvement in the Common Core educational standards. One final committee approval is required before sending the bill to the Governors desk for a signature.
Missouri legislature common coreHouse Bill 1490 (HB1490) passed through the state senate on May 1 by a 24-8 margin. It had previously passed the house by a 132-19 vote. Since the Senate version differed from the House version, the House had an opportunity to accept the amendments offered by the Senate, but refused. That sends the bill to a joint conference committee, with members of both chambers, to work out the differences in the bill and finalized the version going to the governor.

Not to single Missouri out or anything but have any of these states passed a resolution explaining why they bought into this crap in the first place?
It was the federal money that the states were too cowardly to live without.
Here in Michigan they made a lot of noise about how much they opposed it then quietly voted for it.
Then they found out about all the strings attached.
“Not to single Missouri out or anything but have any of these states passed a resolution explaining why they bought into this crap in the first place?”
That is a fair question, and the answer is that people still BLINDLY TRUST the self-identified ‘experts’ when it comes to education.
Heck, the majority of people ON THIS SITE still send their kids to government schools - so is it a surprise that people they elect essentially defer to next level of government when it comes to education?
I won’t live long enough to see the day when most people actually take the education of their kids into their own hands. The American way seems to be: Throw the kid in a school bus and forget he exists. And the results show that.
Do we have a count of the number of states that have withdrawn? I think Missouri makes 6 along with Virigina, Minnesota, Texas, Alaska, and Nebraska.
Does the bill really take MO out of Common Core or is it a fake piece of legislation like the fake policy announced by IN Governor Mike Pence.
IMO, the bill that was passed will not "get rid" of Common Core in Missouri, but will only provide a committee and cover to stall withdrawal long enough to fully implement it instead. Just my opinion... I hope I'm wrong on that part!
