Tennessee Replaces Common Core With Only One Dissenting Vote

Common Core is Replaced in Tennessee!

Hallelujah!  EVERY Tennessee legislator except ONE voted to Replace Common Core.  The Governor was involved in the legislative process and will sign the bill into law.

The South Carolina legislature passed a replacement bill in June 2014.  In March 2015, the SC Board of Education adopted replacement standards.

The Alabama Ahead Act, SB101 AND HB424, provides for the BEST replacement process.

What about it, Alabama?!!
