PHOENIX (AP) - The State Board of Education has voted to create a committee to review Arizona’s Common Core standards for math and reading.

The committee will hold public hearings and oversee English and math experts who will draft the language of the new standards before the end of the 2015 school year.

The board voted 9-1 to create the 17-member committee that will include business owners, college deans, parents, teachers and Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas. Douglas built her primary and general election campaigns on her opposition to the standards.

Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey asked the Board to review the standards and reject the parts that don’t make sense last month.

State lawmakers rejected a bill during the session that would have ditched the state’s Common Core school standards.
