Arizona Senate Kills Bill to Repeal Common Core

Published March 30, 2015

On March 30, the Arizona Senate defeated HB2190, a bill meant to rid the state of Common Core. In a 13-16 vote, the legislators narrowly voted to keep the controversial K-12 math and English standards.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Mark Finchem (R-Oro Valley), aimed to repeal Common Core and to restore local control of standards.

Arizona parents and activists told School Reform News they would continue to fight Common Core.
