And now that won't happen, so will she resign?
Senate votes to preserve Common Core

Common Core appears to be here to stay, at least for the time being.

On a 19-10 vote the Senate on Monday killed legislation which would have allowed schools to develop their own academic standards. More to the point, those standards would not have to be linked to the Common Core standards that were adopted by the state Board of Education in 2010.

Monday’s vote comes less than a week after the House Education Committee voted to block the education board from implementing the standards.

But what the House thinks may end up being irrelevant unless state senators reach the same conclusion. And this is the second year the Senate has refused to scrap the standards.
