The chairs of the two Education committees in the Mississippi Legislature – Rep. John Moore, R-Brandon, and Sen. Gray Tollison, R-Oxford – have expressed support for the Common Core academic standards in the past.
Both said recently they didn’t anticipate any major changes to Common Core in the 2015 legislative session. But that assessment may have changed.
During the upcoming 2015 legislative session, they may be in a position of guiding to passage legislation that would alter or even end Common Core in Mississippi.
