When Rep. Gary Glenn (R, Dist. 98) introduced House Bill 4192 it was bound to cause some controversy. The bill would eliminate all state activities related to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). CCSS are initiatives, which define what K-12 students should know in certain disciplines at the end of each grade level. 43 states, including Michigan, adopted these standards in an effort to earn federal funding. Many parents have been vocal opponents of the CCSS and have called for its repeal.
