Oklahoma Supreme Court upholds Common Core repeal

The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the Legislature had the authority to repeal Common Core education standards for English and math in the state’s public schools. The state’s highest court took the action a little more than four hours after attorneys presented oral arguments in a lawsuit that challenged the Legislature’s action.

The lawsuit alleged lawmakers violated the state Board of Education’s constitutional authority over the “supervision of instruction in the public schools” when they repealed Common Core standards earlier this year. But the Supreme Court’s 8-1 decision said the Legislature’s action was not unconstitutional.

The case was argued about a month before public school students across the state are scheduled to return to classrooms. The standards were scheduled to go into effect in the upcoming school year.
