NCGA to study Common Core

Senator Tom Apodaca and Representative Tim Moore, chairs of the Legislative Research Commission, announced that the North Carolina General Assembly will form a Common Core study committee. The Legislative Research Commission (LRC) Study Committee on Common Core State Standards will include the following members:

Senate: Soucek (Chair), Barefoot, Daniel, Nesbitt, Newton, Parmon, Tillman, and Apodaca (Ex Officio)

House: Holloway (Chair), Brandon, Cotham, Elmore, Horn, Pittman, Speciale, and Moore (Ex Officio)

Chairs of the new study committee were responsible for legislation that added affirmative Common Core language to North Carolina statutes.  Otherwise, there is a interesting mix of Common Core opponents, proponents, and agnostics on this committee.

  • Why wasn’t this study done before so readily adding it to NC? I am grateful that it is being done now but annoyed that it has taken this long. Common Core is already implemented in our schools unfortunately and having a very negative impact on our children and their families. I am praying with all my might that they are not blind to how bad this is for our kids and it gets removed from the schools.

  • Praise the Lord this is happening! Having voted yes on CC for North Carolina prior to researching, studying and pilot testing it was a hasty mistake but it’s not too late! I pray that the evil political agenda that is deep within the CC standards will be clearly revealed in this study and that NC will take a stand and REJECT common core! The future of our children and this country depends on it!

  • My last comment made it sound like I voted yes for CC. I meant when NC voted yes for it! I would never!
