Oklahoma Supreme Court to Decide Constitutionality of New Law That Repealed Common Core

Source: Gene Perry/Oklahoma Policy

The full Supreme Court will hear arguments regarding the constitutionality of a new law that repealed Oklahoma’s adoption of the Common Core curriculum standards and requires the state Board of Education to draft new standards that the Legislature would have the power to change as it sees fit. The lawsuit was filed by a group of parents, teachers and members of the State Board of Education. The suit originally was scheduled to be heard by a Supreme Court referee but that was changed to oral arguments before the full court. The hearing will be held July 15 in the Supreme Court’s State Capitol courtroom.
