• NC House to consider changes to Common Core

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)ong> - (AP) A plan to dismantle North Carolina's Common Core curriculum for public schools is on its way to the House floor.

    The House is expected to consider the bill Wednesday, directing the State Board of Education to replace Common Core standards for math and language arts with new rules for grades K through 12.

    Common Core has been used since the 2012-13 school year and would continue to be used until replaced by the board.

    Gov. Pat McCrory said Tuesday he supports the Common Core and said it is testing implementation that needs to change instead.

    The North Carolina Association of Educators and the North Carolina Chamber oppose changing the rules.

    A Senate committee also planned to take up a nearly identical bill on Wednesday.
