South Carolina Becomes the Second State to 'Un-Adopt' Common Core

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has signed a law that commits the state to write new standards to replace the common core, making the Palmetto State the second one in the nation to reverse its adoption of the Common Core State Standards.

As my colleague Andrew Ujifusa reports over at State EdWatch, the new law requires South Carolina to design new academic standards for the 2015-16 school year, but the common core will remain in effect for 2014-15.

This spring, Indiana became the first state to un-adopt the core. The governors in Missouri and Oklahoma are also considering similar moves.

Given the news in South Carolina, here's how our map of common-core adoptions looks:
