Pence, Ritz pull state out of group creating tests for Common Core

Jul 8, 2016 by

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Gov. Mike Pence has acted to withdraw Indiana from an organization that supports the implementation of the Common Core curriculum in schools and the state’s top educator plans to do the same.

Our partners at the Evansville Courier & Press report Pence sent a letter to the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers seeking to end the state’s involvement with the group, which is developing a common set of K-12 tests and assessments in English and math. Those tests would have replaced ISTEP.

State Superintendent Glenda Ritz said Monday she will submit a similar letter to the group’s governing board chairman, which will make the state’s withdrawal official.
