Louisiana Bills Would Nullify Common Core

Two bills that would nullify the controversial Common Core educational standards have been introduced in the Louisiana State House of Representatives.

HB556 and HB557 would stop all state involvement with Common Core. The bills were introduced on Feb. 27 by Reps. Cameron Henry (R-82) and Jerome Richard (I-55). They were promptly moved to the Education Committee where they will need to pass through a majority before they can be voted upon by the whole house.
