Oklahoma Supreme Court Upholds Legislative Repeal of Common Core

The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled this week that the state legislature acted within its constitutional limits when it repealed Common Core standards for English and math throughout public schools in the state, according to Fox News.

A lawsuit, which had been filed by a group of parents, teachers, and four of the seven members of the state’s board of education, accused the Oklahoma legislators of overreaching their constitutional authority, but the court ruled 8-1 in favor of the legislature.

Schools will reportedly return to the education standards that were in place before Common Core was implemented while new state standards are created and implemented by 2016.

The states of Indiana and South Carolina have also repealed the Common Core education standards in recent months.
