NC House OK's Plan To Replace Common Core Testing

North Carolina's House has passed a proposal to replace Common Core testing standards for public schools.

The full House approved its bill Tuesday sending the measure to the Senate, which is unlikely to pass it.

Both the House and Senate both want to remove the current Common Core curriculum that's been in place for two years, but can't agree on how to do it. Both chambers want new benchmarks created by the State Board of Education, but the House's bill is more restrictive in banning the state from using any tests from the current Common Core standards.

The vote signals that Senate and House members will have to work out their differences in a conference committee before they adjourn for the year.
