The Kansas state House Education Committee voted against a proposal to opt-out of the Common Core State Standards that were adopted in 2010. Critics of the standards object to the cost of the transition, citing the need for more technology to administer the tests, teacher training, along with new textbooks and other materials. However, supporters say there always are costs associated with updating curriculum standards, and that changing course would mean that money already spent had been a waste.
