Massachusetts Legislator Pushing to Pause Common Core Spending

Massachusetts state Rep. Keiko Orall is intent on stopping Common Core spending in her state until more is known about the financial impact of the standards. As she noted today in a post on her Facebook page:

Yesterday I filed legislation to put a PAUSE on PARCC testing and Common Core until we have a better understanding of the costs associated with this huge change of our educational system. Your MA Senators and Representatives can join me by supporting HD4197: An Act to Ensure Quality Education.

If successful, Rep. Orall’s legislation would likely delay further implementation of Common Core until after the November election.

This legislation is still in need of sponsors. Find out more here.

  • As a parent of a 7th and 9th grader I would like to support Rep. Orall’s attempt to put Common Core spending on hold. We are being forced to have our children take part in testing with little or no information.
