House GOP Forces Hearing On Common Core Curriculum

Feb 27, 2014

Republican House members say they've collected enough signatures to force the General Assembly's Education Committee to hold a public hearing on Connecticut's implementation of the so-called "common core" education curriculum and new teacher evaluation process.

House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero Jr. said Wednesday the seldom-used petitioning process was used because the Democratic-controlled committee refused to hold a public hearing on any common core-related bills offered by the GOP, including freezing implementation.
