The South Dakota House has defeated a measure that would reject the Common Core standards.
The measure would not have had authority to take action against the standards because it was proposed as a resolution, not a bill.
Legislators voted 45-24 against it.
The resolution says the standards confine the country to "a nationwide straitjacket on academic freedom."
Supporters say Common Core was part of an inappropriate overreach of national and corporate interests into education. They say state standards should be decided by South Dakotans.
Opponents object to the language in the resolution, saying it has many inaccuracies.
Another measure to require more notice and time between hearings on future academic standards passed 59-9. It will go on to the Senate.
