Common Core reboot

Posted by Matt Ryan on



Earlier this week Governor Andrew Cuomo announced he was creating a task force to look at the implementation of the controversial Common Core across the state.

The members of the panel, a bipartisan group that were also a part of the "New NY Education Reform Commission," are being charged with reviewing the common core state standards, the curriculum guidance and resources, developing a process to ensure tests fit curricula and standards, examining the impact of the current moratorium on recording Common Core tests scores on students records, examining how districts can reduce the quantity and duration of tests and reviewing the quality of the tests.

We analyzed the news from the governor's office with Karen DeWitt of New York State Public Radio, Scott Waldman of Politico New York and Glenn Blain of The Daily News.
