Nevada lawmakers adopt Common Core high school math standards

Nevada lawmakers have given final approval to adopting Common Core math standards for high school students.

The 12-member Legislative Commission voted 11-1 on Monday to approve the regulations, which have already been through several levels of vetting. Republican Assemblyman Ira Hansen said he voted against the measure because his constituents don’t like Common Core.

The move was the last piece needed to fully implement Common Core-aligned standards in high school, and had been excluded from regulations in the past in a technical error.

Republican Sen. James Settelmeyer said that while he isn’t fond of the Common Core standards, any efforts to stop them in the state had already been lost.
