Mississippi Elected Officials Reject Common Core Standards

Heather Kays a research fellow of The Heartland Institute and the managing editor of School Reform News, a national monthly publication reported in the Heartlander on December 31, 2014 on the growing anti-Common Core standards movement in Mississippi. Many Mississippians and Senator Angela Hill (R-District 40, Marion, Pearl River, Walthall) are happy that Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves indicated their disapproval of the Common Core K-12 math and language standards. Senator Hill who has been working on repealing the Common Core standards stated to School Reform News, “I’m encouraged by the actions and the words of the governor and lieutenant governor. I’m ready to work with the lieutenant governor to establish higher standards than Common Core and higher standards than Mississippi has ever had.”
