The Georgia House Education Committee Wednesday rejected a bill aimed at separating the state from the Common Core education standards. The original bill was sponsored by Sen. William Ligon, R-Brunswick.
Senate Bill 167 had an easy time in the Senate. It sailed through the Senate education committee. Then it easily passed on the Senate floor, with little discussion.
But when it got to the House, its momentum slowed down. Lauren Fralick, of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, was just one of the bill’s opponents who spoke at a House Education Committee hearing last week.
