Don’t block Common Core

A proposal to block the Kansas State Board of Education and school districts from spending any state funding to implement the Common Core standards, the Next Generation science standards, or any assessments associated with the two was proposed last week during conference committee negotiations on the state budget. This measure failed to pass either chamber earlier this session and, in fact, was defeated in the House Education Committee on a vote of 11-7.
