OKLAHOMA CITY - A lawsuit challenging the Legislature's repeal of Common Core education standards for English and math is being scrutinized by Oklahoma's highest court just one month before public school students are scheduled to return to the classroom.

Parents, teachers and four members of the Oklahoma Board of Education allege lawmakers violated the board's constitutional authority over the "supervision of instruction in the public schools" when they repealed Common Core standards scheduled to go into effect in the upcoming school year.

Conservative groups maintained that Common Core represents a federal intrusion into Oklahoma's public education system, and Gov. Mary Fallin signed the bill into law last month.
