Jenni White: Oklahoma Lawsuit Against Replacing Common Core

July 17, 2014

Just days after Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin signed a law repealing and replacing national Common Core curriculum and test mandates, the state board of education she appoints sued the legislature over it. The board says it's their job, not the legislature's, to decide what kids learn and how to measure it. Jenni White, co-founder of Restore Oklahoma Public Education, joins the podcast to explain what's happening, whether the board has its head on straight, and what's next in the battle to return control over curriculum back to Oklahoma.
