SALEM, OR -- State Senator Tim Knopp (R-Bend) is supporting a House bill that would help get rid of Common Core standards in the state.  State Representative Carl Wilson (R-Grants Pass) is sponsoring the legislation and approached Senator Knopp for his support.  "He brought me this bill on Common Core which will essentially make it a local decision whether school districts participate or not.  I believe in local control in education, where they can set curriculum and standards.  Because I think parents, school board members and teachers do a better job than the federal government."

 

The newly introduced bill will prevent the Oregon Department of Education from penalizing school districts that decide not to teach to Common Core state standards.  The bill has not yet been scheduled for discussion on the House floor.
