TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Critics of the Kansas Board of Education's decision to adopt the Common Core Standards for math and reading are preparing to voice their concerns to the panel.
The objections were expected to be raised Tuesday at the board's monthly meeting.
Kansas is among 46 states that have adopted the Common Core Standards, which set out the academic expectations for students from kindergarten through high school. Kansas adopted the standards in 2010 and school districts have begun implementing them in the classrooms and training teachers.
Critics argue that Common Core is too expensive and gives up local districts' control over education standards to a national consortium.
Supporters say the standards will increase academic rigor.
