Common Core Foe: Get Feds Out Of Education

KSAL StaffFebruary 17, 2014

An eastern Kansas Republican who is the main proponent of a House measure that would nullify Common Core reading and math standards in the state admits he hasn’t read what’s in them.

Rep. Willie Dove, of Bonner Springs, says he is driven by a firm belief that the federal government shouldn’t be involved in education. He is pushing a bill in the Kansas House that would also nullify recently adopted Next Generation Science Standards and prohibit school districts from administering any tests aligned to those standards.

Dove serves on the House Education Committee, which on Wednesday will conduct a hearing on the bill. Leaders in both chambers say the measure faces an uphill battle and isn’t likely to go anywhere this year.
