Kansas Education Official Responds to GOP Resolution

KSAL StaffSeptember 19, 2013

Kansas education commissioner Diane DeBacker says she will be sending a “friendly” letter to the state Republican Party this week correcting what she and other education leaders are calling misinformation about Common Core Standards for reading and math.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the letter is a response to a resolution the Kansas GOP state committee adopted last weekend calling for Kansas to withdraw from the standards.

The standards – which have been adopted in 45 states and the District of Columbia – are intended to raise academic expectations so students will be prepared for either college or the workforce by the time they graduate from high school.

The GOP resolution says Common Core amounts to an illegal transfer of power to the federal government and unaccountable private interests.
