Interview with Education Commissioner Elia

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

New State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia joins us on the program just in time for the start of the new school year.

We have lots to discuss with Elia, including her stance on teacher evaluations, the "opt-out" movement and the implementation of the Common Core.   Speaking of the latter, Andrew Cuomo announced after our interview with the commissioner that he is forming a commission to examine the implementation of the Common Core across the state.  A process he has called "deeply flawed."
