OKLAHOMA CITY – Gov. Mary Fallin today repealed the state’s controversial Common Core curriculum.

The “federal overreach tainted a Common Core program created with “well-intentioned goals,” Fallin said.  “President Obama and Washington bureaucrats have usurped Common Core in an attempt to influence state education standards.”

Common Core State Standards will be replaced with “new, more rigorous standards” by August 2016, according to House Bill 3399 signed by Fallin.
