State Sen. Michael Watson of Pascagoula files bill to repeal Common Core, form advisory board: Mississippi Press

Sen. Michael Watson, R-Pascagoula, filed a bill tonight that he co-authored with Sen. Angela Burks Hill, R-Pearl River, aimed at a full repeal Common Core standards and form an advisory board to come up with new educational guidelines for the state.

Watson’s bill will be assigned a number and a committee – likely the education committee – on Tuesday, and it must be out of committee by Feb. 3 to stay alive on the legislative calendar.

“We are going to look at that list of states that have standards better than Common Core and use that as a foundation for our new standards,” Watson said. “We will end up with our own standards that are better, higher and cleaner than Common Core.”
