MURFREESBORO, August 26, 2015– This past session, HB1035 from Rep. Billy Spivey was the bill to review and replace Common Core with Tennessee specific standards. It set forth a process for review of our current educational standards by parents, educators, and constituents, as well as allowing input into the new standards. The new suggested standards will be drafted by a ten member committee comprised of ten appointments by Governor Haslam, Lt. Governor Ramsey and Speaker Harwell.
It is important to note that schools will be using the same standards as last year until the new ones are adopted, which will take a maximum of two school years.
