RALEIGH -- Common Core has had a bumpy run as the standard for what is taught in classrooms across North Carolina. Now it appears Common Core may be getting expelled from the Tar Heel state. A study committee recommended the General Assembly pass a law preventing these federal standards being pushed further. Republican Lieutenant Governor Dan Forrest commended representatives for listening to North Carolina residents.

Forrest said, "They heard the voices of the people; the teachers, the parents, the administrators, and others that have had concerns with common core for quite some time. They've listened to them and they've made the appropriate steps to begin the process of gaining control of our education standards."

The new legislation will be addressed in this year's short session beginning in May.
