LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky residents will get a chance to review state academic standards later this year and suggest changes.

Education Commissioner Terry Holliday says the initiative called the Kentucky Core Academic Standards Challenge will begin in the fall.

He says the project isn't a reaction to criticism of the national Common Core standards, on which Kentucky's standards are based.

Instead, Holliday says he has always maintained that the state standards should be formally reviewed after about five years. Kentucky Core Academic Standards were implemented in 2010.

Holliday says a group of higher education professionals, business leaders and teachers will use the public feedback to make revisions.
