In The Region:

Backers of a bill that seeks to repeal the Common Core education standards in Ohio are trying an alternative path through the Legislature, after a previous attempt stalled in committee.

The sponsors are taking the bill to a different committee. That concerns House Education Committee Chairman Gerald Stebelton, who supports the Common Core. He says the state Department of Education made its case for adopting the Common Core standards four years ago and no objections were raised then.

"Now (here) we are four years later in that process with full implementation just a few short weeks away," Stebelton says. "If they try to pass this bill mid-school year, you talk about creating chaos. This is chaos personified.”

Stebelton says he thinks the repeal is an “overreaction” to what he calls a loud and shrill minority. Hearings on the Common Core repeal are set to start in the House Rules Committee on Aug. 12.

Since the Common Core was adopted by 45 states and Washington D.C. in 2010, three states have tossed out the standards.
