2014 Common Core Legislation Round-Up (10th Update)

BY Shane Vander Hart

Here’s the latest round of Common Core legislation that has been filed. There’s too many to do individual articles so I wanted to get caught up and mention them in one article. As a recap I’ll also mention bills I’ve already written about. I’m sure I’m also missing legislation, my apologies if I miss your state. Taking in Common Core news (and my inbox) is like drinking from a fire hose. If I missed something leave a comment and I will add it—this is a work in progress.

Failed by Public Education, These Boys Are Now Thriving Due to New Learning Opportunities

The idea of one-size-fits-all education is being discredited at the same time Common Core endorses that very idea. Common Core seeks to put schools even further into a box, and that is one of the reasons that non-traditional forms of schooling are gaining in popularity.

Victory for Louisiana School Vouchers?

DC bureaucrats are attempting once again to interfere with the educational choice of parents. Do states have the right to direct education for the students that reside there? If the latest battle in Louisiana is any indication, some in the federal government won't be happy with anything other than invasion of your rights.

Just ask Ann Duplessis, former anti-voucher advocate who is now at the forefront of a group fighting for vouchers.
