MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — State legislators passed a bill Monday that will lead to reform of educational standards in the Volunteer State. The bill ultimately will put into law the review process already in place by Gov. Bill Haslam and reform the current “Common Core” standards that are being used. The Tennessee Education Association says no matter the system, they’re wanting teachers to have a say in the process. “We feel like that teachers are the professionals. They should be the ones that help develop the standards,” said Lorrie butler of the Tennessee Education Association. “They know the need of the students, and they should be on the ground level developing any type of standards.” Butler says if signed by the governor, the bill would do away with Common Core in the state of Tennessee.
