Michigan would dump the controversial "common core" education standards under a bill in the state House.
State representative Gary Glenn, R-Midland, introduced the bill, which calls for adopting a set of standards developed by the state of Massachusetts.
Massachusetts has the best standards in the country, according to Glenn.
He said the new standards are more rigorous and will better prepare students for college and work.
“Why would we give Michigan students anything less than the best in the country?” Glenn asked.
