SPONSORS: Rep. Boehm, Hills 27

This bill:

I. Amends the school standards included in the substantive content of an adequate education.

II. Prohibits the department of education and the state board of education from implementing or enforcing the so-called “common core state standards” without prior approval of the general court.
