Common Core Opposition Cropping Up in Mississippi

WJTV Channel 12 in Mississippi reports that opposition to the Common Core State Standards is starting to crop up in Mississippi.

A group of state senators is questioning Mississippi’s implementation of the Common Core education standards, even as the state’s schools move to fully implement the standards this fall.

Republican Sen. Angela Hill of Picayune says Mississippi’s decision to set different testing goals for different racial subgroups undermines the state’s adoption of the standards, along with 44 other states. Hill wants to at least freeze Mississippi’s work on Common Core, if not reverse it.

Great news.  In the comments section please leave information about any grassroots groups that you know are fighting the Common Core in Mississippi.
