Sen. Scott Schneider, R-Indianapolis, plans to introduce legislation that would remove the state's involvement with the Common Core State Standards. The sponsor of the legislation, expected to be heard in committee on Jan. 16, said he was concerned that the common core was adopted without a clear understanding of what it means for teachers and students. The legislation is seen as rebuttal of initiatives spearheaded by outgoing state schools superintendent Tony Bennett, who was defeated in November's election.
