House Bill 4276: Prohibit Common Core Standards
Sponsors:
Representative McMillin, Representative Hooker, Representative McBroom, Representative Somerville and Representative Howrylak
Summary:

House Bill 4276 would prohibit the state of Michigan from adopting the Common Core Standards and require the state board to develop its model core academic curriculum content standards. This bill would reject the national curriculum standards in favor of state developed standards.

HSLDA's Position:
Support.
Action Requested:

We encourage you to contact your representative and give him or her the following messages in your own words:

“I am calling to support HB 4276, which would prohibit the adoption of the Common Core Standards. Michigan has spent years preparing its own state curriculum and adopting these untested, one-size-fits-all standards would destroy the progress we have made and threaten parental rights to direct the education of their children. Please vote in favor of HB 4276 to prevent the adoption of these harmful standards.”

Status:
2/19/2013 (House) Introduced and Referred to Education Committee
