  17. Lawmakers discuss Common Core compromise proposalRead the original story

    Monday Apr 14 | The Jackson Sun

    Collierville. "There shouldn't be a rush to implementation on that, and I think that's what the consensus will be." Under the proposal, the state Department of Education would put out a "request for proposals" for alternative testing. The state's current testing program, known as TCAP, would continue in the interim. Tea party-aligned officials and candidates want to delay the standards or abandon them altogether in at least a dozen of the 45 states that adopted some part of the guidelines. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence last month signed the first Common Core repeal to make it through a legislature. In Tennessee, proposals to do away with the standards and their assessment component failed in a House subcommittee last month. Tennessee adopted the standards in 2010 and began a three-year phase-in the following year. Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam is among supporters who say the standards -- developed by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers -- are needed to better prepare students for the future. They're intended to provide students with the critical thinking, problem solving and writing skills needed for college and the workforce.
