Common Core standards up for debate
State lawmakers have formed a special bipartisan subcommittee to debate the merits of the Common Core Standards Initiative.
Last month, the State Legislature blocked the state from implementing the school standards. Lawmakers said they needed more time to review Common Core before letting it take full effect in Michigan. The subcommittee met for the first time today in Lansing.
Republican State Rep. Amanda Price from Park Township is the vice-chair of the subcommittee and she spoke with All Things Considered Host, Jennifer White.
