Board Of Education To Send reminder To Legislature
03/13/2013

The Kansas State Board of Education will send a letter to Gov. Sam Brownback and state lawmakers reminding them of the board's authority to set state education standards.

The board voted Tuesday to send the letter because a House committee is considering a bill that would force the state board to scrap its current guidelines in math and English, called Common Core standards. Some lawmakers have said the Common Core standards are federal intrusion into state education decisions.

Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker told the state board that it has the authority to set standards in Kansas. She says some lawmakers have incorrect information about the why Kansas accepted the standards.
