As school districts around the state prepare to bring the Common Core standards into their classrooms this fall, Douglas Countys school board is putting its opposition to the standards on the record.
The Douglas County Board of Education last night unanimously passed a resolution arguing against the implementation of the standards both across the state on principle and in their district specifically.
The board argues that the spirit of the Common Core violates the broad discretion on standards and curriculum that Colorado districts are granted in the state constitution.

The Colorado State Board of Education signed on to the Common Core standards in 2010.
