Miss. Senate confirms pro-Common Core Superintendent

The Miss. Senate confirmed Carey Wright as the State Superintendent of Education on March 19th despite her support for Common Core.  Common Core is a national educational curriculum and standard promoted by the Obama Administration.  The Senate voted 46-6 to confirm Wright.

The Mississippi State Board of Education approved Common Core-aligned curricula in February.  The standards were adopted in 2010 but 2014-2015 school year will be the first year that the curriculum and testing aligned with them.
