Greater New Orleans Tea Party Message Board › LOUISIANA STATE LEGISLATION, LEGISLATORS, REGULATION 2015 › LEGISLATIVE ACTION TO STOP COMMON CORE AND SLDS DATA BASE IN LOUISIANA
The state of Alabama introduced SB 403 in their legislature this year to STOP the implementation of common core state standards and the "national" student database. Unfortunately, this bill was killed by the Senate President (a Republican) because he couldn't "figure out the truth" ??
PLEASE READ THIS BILL...... IT SEEMS TO BE A VERY REASONABLE AND TRANSPARENT APPROACH TO PUT THE STATE AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES BACK IN CHARGE OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM AND TO SEVERELY LIMIT ANY FEDERAL INTERVENTION. Louisiana needs a similar approach........
What this bill does:
STOPS implementation of Common Core Standards (CCSI) and all funding
STOPS implementation and operation of the SLDS Database and funding
Protects student privacy
Prohibits State Board of Education and the State Dept of Education from entering into contracts, agreements, consortiums, etc with anyone outside the state
** this bill does not require any kind of legislative audit...... presumably because it puts an end to these 2 programs.
FYI..... this is the Indiana anti common core bill which has passed the House and Senate
INDIANA BILL HB 1427
READ STARTING ON PAGE 8, LINE 35 THRU PAGE 10, LINE 25
This bill seems to temporarily halt Common Core Standards...... but then loops around and ends up implementing them again and continuing to adhere to the mandates from the FEDERAL Dept of Education. Maybe its just me....... but I do NOT think this is a good bill !!!
