BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says she’s approved new math and English standards for North Dakota schools.

The standards are not based on the federally backed Common Core, which has been criticized as a federal takeover of education. They’re the work of two committees comprising more than 70 math and language experts, with the help of public comment.

The committees began working on the standards last June. They’ll be in place for the 2017-18 school year.
