SB 812 ACR - Replace Common Core State Standards with North Carolinas Higher State Standards

Established the Academic Standards Review Commission to review the Common Core English Language Arts and Mathematics standards, previously adopted by the State Board of Education in 2010. The Commission will propose modifications to the academic standards in these subject areas, with the goal of ensuring the new standards increase students achievement and to be age appropriate. Civitas believes the conservative position is to reject growing federal authority over state and local education issues and instead assert North Carolina’s constitutional authority to determine what is taught in our classrooms. The Conservative Vote Is Yes.
