    DEVELOPING: The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the Legislature had the authority to repeal Common Core education standards for English and math in the state's public schools.

    The state's highest court took the action Tuesday a little more than four hours after attorneys presented oral arguments in a lawsuit that challenged the Legislature's action.

    The lawsuit alleged lawmakers violated the state Board of Education's constitutional authority over the "supervision of instruction in the public schools" when they repealed Common Core standards earlier this year. But the Supreme Court's 8-1 decision states the legislation does not violate the state Constitution.

    The case was argued about a month before public school students across the state are scheduled to return to classrooms. The repeal was scheduled to go into effect in the upcoming school year.

    It will go to SCOTUS. The Common Core is backed by Bill Gates who is pulling strings behind Arne Duncan. We haven't heard the last of these traitors.

    We need to get rid of the Dept of Education. It's against the law for the federal government to dictate to the states their mode of educating their kids.

    This government is way out of control and needs reigned in.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    The people who tried to do this during the Reagan administration were relieved of their positions. Google "Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt."

    It needs to be pushed again.

    20 U.S. Code 1232a - Prohibition against Federal control of education



    No provision of any applicable program shall be construed to authorize any department, agency, officer, or employee of the United States to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system, or over the selection of library resources, textbooks, or other printed or published instructional materials by any educational institution or school system, or to require the assignment or transportation of students or teachers in order to overcome racial imbalance.
