Two bills were introduced this week in the Alabama Legislature that, if passed, would repeal Alabama’s College and Career Ready Standards. These standards were adopted by the State Board of Education in 2010 following public hearings around the state.
- overrule the State Board of Education’s 2010 adoption of the College and Career Ready Standards, and prevent money from being spent on implementing them;
- forbid the state from using data to improve student achievement; and
- require all future academic standards to be approved by a majority vote of the Legislature instead of the State Board of Education.
