With Ohio becoming a member of the Common Core State Standard Initiative, along with 43 other states back in 2010, a new nationalized set of educational standards were implemented.

Those requirements may already be headed out the door however, with House Bill 237 making progress at the state level to repeal Common Core Standards in the Buckeye State.

Former State Board of Education Candidate and current Ontario School Board member Marianne Gasiecki spoke at the Richland County Republican Women's meeting about HB 237 and the reason's why she supports the piece of legislation.

As people become more educated on the curriculum associated with Common Core, Gasiecki says "The eyes are really getting opened and there's a lot of anger right now."

"It's a way of creating a one-size fits all, cookie cutter education" She remarked.

Gasiecki pointed out the number of businesses that were benefiting from the millions of dollars being poured into the initiative by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, including text book and data gathering companies, that are receiving large sums of money.

"It's more of the cronyism that we're all fed up with." Gasiecki says.
