Yesterday, the North Carolina House passed the conference committee version of SB 812. Within hours, Governor McCrory was out making a statement about how he’ll sign it but it doesn’t change anything. The NC Chamber of Commerce’s Gary Salamido had a similar message. They both talk about this ‘backdoor’ to keep what they like and I’ve addressed this before but will revisit it after we take a look at what was said.
Here’s the relevant bits from the Daily Caller:… KEEP READING…. Continue reading
North Carolina’s Legislature has just passed SB 812 to remove and replace Common Core. The House just voted to concur with the Senate and the bill now will head to Governor McCrory. The vote was 71-34. Continue reading
The North Carolina Common Core replacement bill, SB 812, is on the House calendar for tomorrow, 7-16-14. The House convenes at Noon. Below is the announcement. Continue reading
The Common Core bill that was placed in a conference committee has been placed on the Senate calendar for Thursday, July 10th.
It would appear the final version scraps the substitute put in place by the House. That substitute replaced the language of SB 812 with that of HB 1061. The letter from the conference committee states, “Delete the entire House Committee Substitute Favorable 6/23/14, Fifth edition engrossed 6/23/14 and substitute the attached Proposed Conference Committee Substitute S812-PCCS35584-TL-3.”
Boiled down, we are back to the language of SB 812.
Latest version: S812-PCCS35584-CSTL-3
Conference Committee letter: S812-CR-NBC-676

This is a reposting of my DaTechGuy weekly column: NC Common Core Update
By A.P. Dillon
South Carolina has dumped the Common Core. So has Oklahoma and Missouri is on its way. While I’ve been busy following other states, I am right in the middle of what is happening in my own state of North Carolina. Here are some updates. Continue reading
Governors in states surrounding North Carolina and across the country have all realized what a mess Common Core is.
Governor Pence dumped it.
Governor Haley got rid of it.
Governor Fallin got rid of it.
Governor Nixon has just to sign to be rid of it.
Governor Jindal is making moves to drop it.
Governor Haslam made the first move to stop it by dropping the PARCC tests.
Governor Cuomo has a full on insurrection of moms in NY; in time, likely they will dump it.
Also worth noting:
The Republican National Committee has a resolution opposing it.
The U.S. Congress has a resolution opposing it.
Our state of NC has a conference committee hammering out the details between SB 812 and HB 1061. The end result will be a commission to replace Common Core and create higher standards for North Carolina, the removal of a copyrighted brand name from our statutes, the restoration of educational sovereignty to our state and the return of a true education to our students. Having said that, the question remains:
Is North Carolina’s Governor McCrory coming around finally?
The answer? Maybe so. Continue reading
