Indiana Becomes First State to Back Out of Common Core

Indiana is the first state to withdraw from the Common Core reading and math standards that were adopted by most states around the country.

A bill was passed Monday pulling Indiana from the program.

Indiana Legislators approved earlier measures requiring the State Board of Education to draft new standards outlining what students should be learning in each grade rather than using the Common Core standards.

Officials in Indiana say their students will learn better with standards developed on a state and local level.

Indiana adopted the Common Core in 2010.

Common Core is a set of educational standards developed by the National Governors Association and state education superintendents.
