Massachusetts has another chance to end Common Core education and return to the frameworks prior to 2010. State Representative Kevin Kuros, from Worcester filed a bill, HD 1430, that if passed by his colleagues and signed by the Governor, terminates Common Core in the Commonwealth. What a welcome relief for the many parents and taxpayers. Don't expect lawmakers to end Common Core without a fight. Pick up the phone or write your Beacon Hill lawmakers. Tell them to drain the swamp on Common Core.
