The set of education standards known as Common Core is under attack just as schools around Ohio begin to implement it. Hearings began this week on a bill to repeal the standards in Columbus.
The Common Core is a set of benchmarks created by a group of education experts from around the country, including some from Ohio, in 2010. The standards were then adopted by the state along with more than 40 others.
Robert Hill, superintendent of Firelands Local Schools in Lorain County, says a great deal of research went into crafting the standards.
