The Cleveland Board of Education is opposing efforts to repeal the Common Core State Standards in Ohio.
House Bill 597 would abandon Common Core, a more demanding set of standards set to go into effect with exams students take this school year. In a resolution approved unanimously Tuesday, the board said it is committed to rigorous education standards that prepare Cleveland students for an increasingly competitive global marketplace.
"CMSD is a strong supporter of Ohio's new learning standards. We expect and believe our kids can perform at high levels," Chief Executive Officer Eric Gordon said.
