A bill introduced in the Arizona State House would stop the state from continuing its participation in the Common Core educational standards and cancel all prior efforts to do so.

Introduced by State Reps Mark Finchem, Brenda Barton, Jay Lawrence, and Noel W. Campbell, House Bill 2190 (HB2190), would prohibit the state board of education from adopting or implementing Common Core standards in the state. It would also render null and void any previous implementations of these standards.

The bill also reads, in part:

The state board of education is the sole authority for adopting academic content standards for this state’s public schools and shall adopt academic content standards of the state board’s choosing.  An official of this state, whether appointed or elected, may not join any consortium, association or other entity on behalf of this state or a state agency if the membership would require this state to cede any measure of control over education, including academic content standards and assessments of those standards.

The bill also contains provisions pertaining to revisions of the state academic content standards. In which the state board of education must hold a public meeting in each congressional district prior. There is also language specifically stating that a school district, school or charter school is not required to use any statewide academic standards adopted by the state board of education as a condition for approval to operate or for receiving state monies.

The first step for HB2190 will be a committee assignment for the bill. The committee will first need to pass the bill before the full house can vote on it.
