SD Senate Panel Approves Common Core Study
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota legislative panel has approved a measure that would set up a study of the Common Core standards now being used for math and English in the state's school districts.

The Senate Education Committee voted 5-2 to send the measure to the full Senate. Supporters say a study could help settle the battle between supporters and opponents of Common Core.

The proposal would create an appointed council to compare the Common Core standards and tests with the standards and tests previously used by South Dakota.

The Common Core standards were developed in an initiative started by the governors and chief education officers of 45 states.

Critics say the standards could take away local control of schools. Supporters say the standards set rigorous standards for students.
