SD Senate Rejects Plan To Study Common Core

January 23, 2014, 6:28 PM

SD Senate Rejects Plan To Study Common Core
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Senate has rejected a plan to conduct a study aimed at settling the dispute between supporters and opponents of the Common Core standards now used for math and English in the state's school districts.

Senators voted 18-16 for the bill. But it required a two-thirds majority, or 24 votes, to pass because it would have spent state money on the study.

The measure's main sponsor, Sen. Ernie Otten of Tea, says the-two year study could have determined whether the new standards used in nearly all states are better than the state rules they replaced.

Senators say the proposed study was rejected because it was opposed by those who want the Common Core standards repealed now and those who want them to stay in place.
