Lawmakers debate more Common Core bills

Posted:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ South Dakota lawmakers have taken another step toward studying whether the Common Core standards that establish what students should know in each grade level should be kept in the state's schools.

Earlier in the week, a legislative panel approved a measure that would set up a study of the existing Common Core standards for math and English.

A Senate committee now has endorsed a companion measure that would prevent the state from adopting Common Core standards in other subjects.
