MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The state Senate Education Committee is set to consider a bill that would repeal the state's use of the Common Core education standards.

 

The bill by committee Chairman Dick Brewbaker of Montgomery would undo the standards adopted by the state Board of Education in 2010. It would also require the Legislature to review any new standards. His committee meets Wednesday morning.

 

State Superintendent of Education Tommy Bice says he favors keeping the Common Core standards, which are now part of the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards. Gov. Robert Bentley supporting repealing them.

 

The standards cover math and English. They were recommended by the National Governors Association.
