Michigan House Approves Resolution Enabling Continued Funding of Common Core

The Michigan House approved a resolution today that would enable further state spending on the implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The resolution, which passed by a vote of 85-21 will, now move to the Michigan Senate for approval.

Director of Democrats for Education Reform Michigan (DFER-MI), Harrison Blackmond, made the following statement after the House vote:

“The House exercised bi-partisan common sense by moving this resolution forward,” stated Blackmond. “This is the right move for Michigan and the right move for our kids. We urge the Michigan Senate to join the House by voting in favor of this resolution to improve the quality of education received by Michigan students.”
