State Wins Over Parents In Common Core Lawsuit

South Dakota’s adoption of Common Core standards was not illegal, a Hughes County judge ruled last week. Two South Dakota parents filed a suit against Gov. Dennis Daugaard and the state in November arguing that South Dakota’s involvement in an multi-state assessment group aligned with Common Core standards was illegal.

Last week, Circuit Court Judge Mark Barnett ruled that the state had not violated any federal or state laws.
