Yesterday, the Senate at the General Assembly worked on HB 657.
The bill would make changes to high school math in North Carolina by offering a traditional math alternative in addition to to Common Core Integrated math.
The bill passed it’s third reading but was placed back on the calendar due to a technical correction needing to be made. Hat tip to Education NC reporter, Alex Granados for that piece of information.
The Senate will make the corrections needed today, June 16th.
Several amendments were added yesterday as well, all of which were passed. Most of the amendments were technical in nature.
