NH House to debate several anti-Common Core bills

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - New Hampshire's Republican-led House is considering bills to gut parts of the Common Core education standards.

The House will debate several measures Wednesday aimed at the standards and tests associated with them. Most have a positive endorsement from the House Education Committee, signaling a strong chance of passage.

One bill says schools don't have to adopt the standards. Opponents of the bill say it's redundant because the state board of education does not force schools to use the standards. Passing the bill will make clear the House's skepticism of the standards.

Another bill would let parents opt their children out of taking statewide tests associated with the standards while a third would prohibit the state from requiring districts to comply with federal mandates that aren't fully funded.
