Shane Vander Hart and Emmett McGroarty  put together this list.

  No doubt more needs to be added to it.  But this is significant.  Policymakers need to understand that this movement is exploding:

Indiana is clearly on the way out of the Common Core.

Georgia actually won a RttT grant, yet a very strong exit bill passed the Senate Education Committee last week on a unanimous vote.

A bill passed the AZ Senate Eduation Committee last week on a 6-3 vote.

The NEA withdrew support for the CC.  Significantly, it did not critisize implementation but called for an examination of the content as well.
