Statehouses across the country have begun to wake up and see Common Core for what it really is; a nationalized education that hinders education on the local level. Oklahoma has joined the growing number of states who are actively trying to stop federal education to save their schools from the dumbing down and brainwashing of their children.

House Bill 3399, by House Speaker Jeff Hickman, R-Fairview, and Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate, passed by a vote of 37-10. The House could move to accept Senate changes or reject them, sending the measure to a conference committee.

Very good news.

Anyone still unsure should see this thread on FR: it has a link to a 30 minute film exposing Common Core and the Washington D.C. establishment’s LIE about the “states supporting Common Core”...it is a true revelation of the effects that will devastate learning and local control of education.
