SD Panel Declines Study Of Common Core

February 21, 2014, 10:33 AM

SD Panel Declines Study Of Common Core
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota House Education Committee has killed a bill to study the economic impact of the controversial Common Core standards.

Committee members voted 8-5 against the bill.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard has already expressed support for the standards, which were developed by national groups of school officers and governors. The Common Core sets K-12 benchmarks for students in math and English.

Supporters of the measure say the costs of implementing the standards and corresponding tests are high. They say a cost study should be done by an outside party.

Opponents say the study was not well-funded. A representative from the state's Education Department says it has been studying and managing the costs of Common Core throughout implementation.

Next week the committee will decide on other Common Core-related bills.
