Hearings set for Ohio proposed Common Core repeal

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio House panel has scheduled three days of hearings next week on a Republican proposal to repeal Common Core learning standards in the state.

The bill's sponsors say they've heard widespread discontent from parents, teachers and communities on the standards.

Reps. Matt Huffman of Lima and Andy Thompson of Marietta have said Ohio made a mistake four years ago in pursuing the standards and their legislation would seize back state control over the process.

The House Rules and Reference Committee plans to take testimony on the bill Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Districts are working to implement the standards, which have the backing of a diverse coalition including teachers' unions and community and business groups.

The Ohio Federation of Teachers has said repeal would create chaos for school districts.
