Huntsville City Schools fights SB-190 | News
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF)- Huntsville City Schools is fighting a bill they say would cripple the future of education in Alabama.
State Bill 190 would prevent the Alabama State Board of Education from compiling or sharing data about students or teachers and freeze the board's ability to adopt and put in place the state's common core standards.
Huntsville City Schools Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski said those standards are designed to help young people prepare for success in college and careers.
He said if this bill passes, it will damage school systems across the state.
"Forty-seven states are moving in that direction with this Senate bill. If it were to pass immediately, we would become an island. We would no longer be allowed to align with anything going on in the 47 states with regard to common core curriculum. That would be devastating. Alabama would be an island," said Wardynski.
Right now, SB-190 is before the Senate. If it passes, it will then go to the House for approval.
