Ky Lawmakers Send Common Core Repeal to Gov. Bevin

Kentucky lawmakers Wednesday wrapped up work on an education bill that would gradually repeal Common Core standards.

As WEKU’s John Hingsbergen reports, it would give school districts more control in how to turn around low-performing schools.   


The bill won final passage in the Senate on a 37-0 vote. The measure was a top priority for Republicans in charge of the Senate.

The wide-ranging education measure now goes to Republican Gov. Matt Bevin.

The bill would give local school districts more say in how to deal with schools that the state considers in dire need of support.

The bill also would give more local control over teacher evaluations.
