SB 167 passed in Ga Senate, dies in House

On Tuesday, Feb 25, 2013 the Georgia Senate passed SB 167 which, among other things, would have had the effect of (a) rejecting Georgia's continuation with the implementation of the CCGPS, (b) plunging our state educational agency into another de-stabilizing round of standards review and adoption and (c) prohibiting effective cooperation about educational standards and assessments at the interstate, regional, and national levels.

After a great number of GCTM members and others expressed their views with regard to this bill, the House Education Committee failed to pass it into law. The vote was 13-5 against.
