On May 23rd, the Oklahoma State Legislature approved HB 3399, a bill which would, if it became law, withdraw this state from the Common Core State Standards initiative. This bill is now on Gov. Mary Fallin's desk, awaiting her decision; the Governor has until June 7th to sign the bill into law, or veto it, or do nothing (in which case the bill will not take effect).

ENID, Okla. (AP) — Members of the Enid Public Schools Board of Education say an overabundance of standardized testing is getting in the way of students' education.

The board unanimously approved a resolution Monday night that says the number of tests students are required to take gets in the way of child-centered learning and limits meaningful learning.

The resolution calls on the Legislature to re-examine Oklahoma's system of public school accountability.

The Enid News & Eagle reports  that copies of the resolution will be given to area legislators.
