Missouri Passes Bill To Reclaim State Control of Education Standards

leave a comment »


JEFFERSON CITY, MO – With strong support in both the House and Senate, the Missouri legislature passed HB1490 on Thursday May 15th. The main purpose of the bill is to define a system wherein state education experts will evaluate and recommend state K-12 education standards. HB1490 passed the House 131:12 and the Senate 23:6. While not going nearly as far in returning local control of education as members of the Missouri Coalition Against Common Core had hoped, the bill is a good first step towards reclaiming state sovereignty over education.

The bill now rests on the Governor’s desk. Now is the time to let him know your support for this legislation. Polite contact will help push it over the finish line.

Governor Nixon can be reached a number of ways.
