Is Governor Cuomo backing away from his support for the new Common Core curriculum in schools? As Karen DeWitt reports, Cuomo seems to have cooled from his initial endorsement of the rapid transition to the adoption of the national education standards.
A national education expert told Long Island school administrators Tuesday that they should join parents in the revolt against Common Core. Diane Ravitch, former assistant sectary of education, said the new set of education standards are socially irresponsible and likely against the law.
For the first time New York's Education commissioner John King is signaling there may be too much state testing. King sent a letter to school administrators across the state Thursday saying that he will push to end at least one state test.
