This morning the  Senate Education Committee voted to repeal Alabama’s College and Career Ready Standards.

The Common Core State Standards are rigorous academic standards that were adopted by the State Board of Education in 2010 after an extensive review process. They have already helped make tremendous strides in Alabama’s children’s teaching and learning.

Parentseducators, and business and military leaders all across the state have united in their support to continue implementing these standards — but their requests were ignored today.

This bill, SB403, will now move to the full Senate. If it passes, the bill would then have to be given favorable report in a House committee and passed by the full House.

Please ask your legislators to base their decisions on the facts, not a national campaign of disinformation. Click here for your legislators’ contact information and talk with them today.

Thank you in advance for using your voice.
