House Bill 237 prohibits the state of Ohio from adopting the Common Core Standards. The bill would also increase privacy protections of personally identifiable educational information. HB 237 rejects national curriculum standards in favor of state developed standards permitting individual schools and districts to make curriculum decisions for their own students.
HSLDA opposes the Common Core. Visit HSLDA's Common Core Resource Page to understand why.
Please contact the members of the House Education Committee, particularly if one of them is your representative, and give them the following messages in your own words:
“I support HB 237 that repeals Common Core Standards. Ohio has spent years preparing its own state curriculum; adopting untested, one-size-fits-all standards and assessments like the PARCC assessments would nullify that progress. Better educational outcomes come when decision making is closest to the student—at the local school board level. HB 237 makes an important step in returning decision-making authority of what and how children learn to parents and elected local school boards. Please vote in favor of HB 237."
