Common Core Curriculum Looks to Make Adjustments
ALBANY -- Changes are coming to the controversial common core program.
On Tuesday, the State Board of Regents is expected to adopt the recommendations made on Monday.
They include holding off on the full implementation of the new standards, until 2022, giving students more time to raise their grades on standardized tests, cutting back on the number of standardized tests, and doing away with teacher evaluations based on the common core curriculum.
15 of the 17 Regents Board Members are in favors of the proposals recommended by Education Commissioner John King, but Governor Cuomo says the proposals are too little, too late.
The Commissioner tells CBS6 the adjustments are necessary if they plan on pleasing parents, teachers, and students.
"We think there's tremendous urgency to get the common core implementation right in every district, but we acknowledge that the implementation has been uneven across districts," says King.
King also says they are open to working with the Governor, and the panel he has appointed.
