Legislative Effort on Common Core Could Doom AP, IB Programs

KSCB News - February 18, 2016 3:34 pm

An effort by Kansas lawmakers to repeal Common Core standards could also mean the end to Advanced Placement Classes and International Baccalaureate programs.

The House Education Committee approved a bill Wednesday that would compel Kansas school districts to develop new standards for reading, math, science and other subjects.

Those standards would replace Common Core-inspired Kansas College and Career Ready Standards that have been in place since 2010.

The vote came after committee members heard a presentation from Duke Pesta, a Wisconsin professor and outspoken critic of Common Core.

The Kansas State Department of Education has estimated the development of new standards would take two years and cost $9 million.
