Common Core to Ohio
Husted sponsored legislation in the Senate that paved the way for Ohio to accept President Obama and Arne Duncan’s Race to the Top grants. Those grants had hooks in them that made Ohio accept Common Core.
Husted voted to allow common core to be implemented due to its inclusion in Gov. Ted Strickland’s 2009-2010 budget. (HB 1, 6/3/2009) http://www.ohioansforlocalcontrol.org/what-you-need-to-know/ohios-timeline-2/
He also further pushed Common Core with SB 180 in 2009
