SD Panel Rejects Two Bills On Common Core Standards

SD Panel Rejects Two Bills On Common Core Standards
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota legislative committee has ruled on three bills relating to the contested Common Core standards, rejecting two by a narrow margin.

The House Education Committee voted 8-7 to defeat a measure to supplant the standards. Supporters of the measure said the standards were developed outside of the state. Opponents said the Education Department and teachers can make adjustments to suit South Dakota students.

Another measure that also failed 8-7 would have allowed parents to keep their children from taking the corresponding test.

Supporters said parents deserve the right to withdraw their students from a standardized test. Opponents said it's important to get test results from all students.

A third bill to require public notice of education hearings on future standards passed 13-1. It will go to the House.
