The Domino effect is happening. States are getting free of Common Core.
First was Indiana. South Carolina and Oklahoma officially dropped out next. Now, here are two more immediately dropping dominoes, Louisiana and Mississippi:
Domino one: Mercedes Schneider provided details on Louisiana Governor Jindal’s Common Core and PARCC exit here. Fascinating conflict of powers in Louisiana. (Thank you, Mercedes Schneider!)
Domino two: The Clarion-Ledger reports that Governor Bryant of Mississipi wants to be free of Common Core.
“I think Common Core is a failed program, and the United States is beginning to realize that,” Bryant said. “Governors all across America are realizing states can do it better.”
Hope that Utah’s Governor Herbert is next.
