A new proposal before the Kansas legislature would nullify reading, math, and science standards for public schools adopted by the State Board of Education.
The measure is sponsored by the House Education Committee. The bill says that new standards would be drafted solely by the Kansas Board, with help from an advisory committee.
Conservative republican legislators tried unsuccessfully last year to block the board from putting into effect the multistate common core standards, which were adopted in 2010.
The bill also would nullify multistate, evolution friendly science standards.
