Information: SB 1 is supposedly and attempt by the Senate to fix the disaster that was SB 1 2009 that opened the door for Common Core. This bill was rather lengthy and needed time for review. We are fortunate that the dedicated individuals with Kentuckians Against Common Core were able to do that. Their determination is SB 1 does not do enough, does not repeal Common Core, does not eliminate needless testing, and does not close the door on Federal education interference, and further it does not stop the current violations of Kentucky’s Constitution by the Kentucky Department of Education. To read their full statement on the specifics of this bill CLICK HERE. Their suggestion is for the Senate GOP to rewrite SB 1 and follow the promise of Governor Bevin “that the Common Core will be no more”.
