A Senate committee has approved a bill that would repeal Common Core standards in Alabama public schools.
The State Senate Committee on Education and Youth Affairs voted 5-3 yesterday morning in favor of repealing current standards applying to math and English curriculums.
Those standards are built into the state's Alabama College and Career Ready Standards.
Supporters of the bill say repealing Common Core gives more control to state and local educators.
Opponents say it would put Alabama behind other states and disrupt learning.
