Lawton's Lee Baxter Appointed to Common Core Committee

LAWTON, Okla._A new committee is moving forward to develop a method for replacing the controversial Common Core education standards, and a Lawton man will be helping in the process.

The Oklahoma Board of Education appointed Lee Baxter to sit on the steering committee for Oklahoma's public schools. Baxter is a former Fort Sill commander and a member of the State Board of Education. Joining him on the committee are nine other people ranging from school administrators to teachers and parents.

The committee is tasked with developing a new set of standards for math and English in Oklahoma's public schools after the legislature repealed Common Core earlier in the year.
