The Kansas State Board of Education is expected to address a number of much-debated issues in 2013, including the adoption of new state standards in science and history, and a new evaluation system for teachers and administrators. The board also will deal with the implementation of new reading and math standards under the common core as well as aspects of the state's waiver from certain requirements of No Child Left Behind. "This will be the biggest year I've seen on the board," board member Carolyn Campbell said.
