Casper, WY (AP) - Opponents of Common Core education standards for Wyoming's public school students say they're energized by efforts in other states to repeal the guidelines.

To date, Oklahoma, Indiana and South Carolina have passed laws repealing the standards. Those states now are writing new learning objectives for their students.

Wyoming is among the states that have adopted Common Core guidelines for teaching reading and math. Some in Wyoming say the standards are a route for undesirable federal intrusion in state and local education policy.

Republican State Senator Dan Dockstader, of Afton, says he's interested in hearing more about how other states have repealed the standards.

A bill that would have repealed Common Core standards failed to get enough votes for consideration by the Wyoming Legislature last winter.
