TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Superintendents from across Kansas plan to gather in Topeka to show support for the Common Core education standards.

The superintendents will attend the Kansas State Board of Education meeting Tuesday to support the national math and English standards as good for Kansas schools. They also want to say the Education Board, not the Legislature, should be in charge of curriculum standards.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/11MOYLu ) the gathering is a response to opponents of Common Core, who packed the State Board of Education meeting last month and pleaded against the standards.

Cheryl Semmel, executive director of the Kansas School Superintendents Association, said superintendents want to thank some members of the board who worked in the Legislature to stop an effort to block or delay the standards in Kansas.
