At noon today in the Education Instruction & Programs subcommittee, Rep. Billy Spivey will unveil his long awaited “epiphany” bill to repeal Common Core standards and replace them with Tennessee standards developed by a commission with 6 0f 10 members appointed by the legislature.
Spivey’s bill, which is being championed by conservatives in the legislature, also reportedly has the approval of Gov. Haslam as well (which, if true, would be a remarkable achievement).
Standing room only. No reserved seating for Pearson, Bill Gates or Kevin Huffman.
