Georgia’s Board of Education plans to discuss a request next month by Governor Nathan Deal to review the Common Core. Common Core is a set of standardized benchmarks of academic progress that several states voluntarily adopted. Georgia signed on in 2010 and implemented the standards beginning with the 2012-2013 school year.
The state Board of Education will hold a hearing Tuesday on whether to remove members of the Miller County school board. The hearing stems from a new state law that allows the governor to remove school board members in districts in danger of losing accreditation.
The Georgia Board of Education warned members of the Miller County school board that they could be removed from office if they don't settle a long-running dispute with the district's superintendent. The state board voted Monday to delay deciding whether to recommend the ouster of county board members until February.
