Arizona pulls out of Common Core consortium

PHOENIX -- Arizona officials have said the state is pulling out of the national organization that put together new educational standards being used around the country.

Arizona is pulling out of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers consortium because the state is in the process of issuing a contract for a new assessment to replace the standardized test AIMS. PARCC will be in the running to get that contract, so the state pulled out to be fair to other competitors.

Arizona will continue to implement Common Core, a set of standards that aim to focus learning on comprehension and real life examples. The state adopted them in 2010, although conservative Republicans in the Legislature this year tried unsuccessfully to revoke them. Brewer has been supportive of the standards.
