DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa conservatives are continuing to fight the Common Core education standards, but it isn't clear that the program will go away at the state level any time soon.

The Common Core is a set of english and math standards that spell out what students should know and when. The standards have been attacked by conservatives, who say the federal government is overreaching into classrooms.

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has not said he wants to eradicate Common Core here, though last year he signed an executive order clarifying that the state would continue to maintain control over education standards and testing. And earlier this month Branstad removed Iowa from an organization created to develop an assessment system for the Common Core standards.
