Gov of Maine Outlaws Common Core With Executive Order

Maine Governor Paul LaPage is rethinking his support of Common Core State Standards (CCSS). LaPage said: “I don’t believe in Common Core. I believe in raising the standards in education.” Standards for CCSS implemented from kindergarten to high school came to fruition with the finalization of the scheme in 2010. After this new theory of education was enacted, a report produced in 2012 showed that 39% of high school students who took the ACT proved to be college-ready. LaPage signed an executive order (EO) reiterating that public schools in Maine are locally controlled that student’s personal information will not be shared with corporations and federal agencies.
