Libertarian group sues Utah over Common Core

Angst over Utah’s adoption of Common Core academic standards is about to spill into the courtroom.

The Libertas Institute, a libertarian-leaning Utah-based public policy organization, announced Thursday it will fund a lawsuit against the state school board regarding its adoption of the standards. Connor Boyack, Institute president, said he expected the lawsuit to be filed by mid-day Thursday in 3rd District Court.

The lawsuit alleges that Utahns — specifically local school boards, superintendents, teachers and parents — weren’t properly consulted about the standards before the state school board voted to adopt them in 2010. It’s a contention with which school board member Debra Roberts took issue Thursday, saying it’s time to quit fighting over the standards and start helping kids.
