They don't approve of the standards because they believe it to be unconstitutional for the federal government to dictate what will be taught because they believe in state and local control over curriculum. I am kind of middle of the road on this issue but this is bogus, it's not why some Republicans/Conservatives/Libertarians oppose Common Core. In general, it is Republicans who believe in reforming public education to improve educational outcomes.
