Thursday, June 5th, Governor Fallin signed HB3399 – the strongest anti-Common Core law in the nation currently – into law. Oddly, though fighting the fight against Common Core since 2010, the win was a bit anti-climactic. It might have been because there was no time for celebration – exhausted, I had two boys to get to two different baseball games that night after having been out of town at an anti-Common Core rally in Ohio for two days – but I also think it’s because I know the process isn’t finished.
(NOTE 6/10: Shawn Hime of the OSSBA corrected me here. NASBE isn't the NSBA - National School Boards Association. OSSBA is affiliated with NSBA NOT NASBE. NSBA has received money from Bill Gates, but not in any way to the extent of NASBE. That needs to be kept straight)
