State Senator Brad Zaun (R-Urbandale)

(Des Moines, IA) State Senator Brad Zaun (R-Urbandale) introduced SF 2123 which would effectively rollback the Common Core State Standards in Iowa.

The bill would focus on graduation requirements and helping student have a graduation plan.  It also rollback Iowa’s state academic standards to what the Iowa Core consisted of in 2006 prior to the Common Core State Standards and the addition of social studies and 21st century skills to the Iowa Core in 2008.  The bill also strips language from the Iowa Code that requires the assessment that Iowa uses to be aligned with the Iowa Core.

This bill is cosponsored by State Senators Randy Feenstra (R-Hull), Amy Sinclair (R-Allerton), Jerry Behn (R-Boone), Mark Chelgren (R-Ottumwa), Jake Chapman (R-Adel), Ken Rozenboom (R-Oskaloosa), Michael Breitbach (R-Strawberry Point), Rick Bertrand (R-Sioux City), Dennis Guth (R-Klemme), Mark Segebart (R-Vail), Joni Ernst (R-Red Oak) and Bill Anderson (R-Pierson).

“My agenda was simple, to shut down the Common Core,” State Senator Zaun told Caffeinated Thoughts.  He also admitted that the bill is not perfect.  He said he’s meeting with the Senate Republican Caucus education staffer to fix some of the errors made due filing quickly since the first funnel deadline is next Friday, February 21.

It has been referred to the Senate Education committee, but it has not been assigned a subcommittee yet.
