Regardless of your opinion on common core, it has been adopted and implemented in our schools and is a reality.
As discussed in a post below, members of the Assembly have filed a bill (Bill No: A07994 ) seeking to repeal CC. That Bill is presently in the pipeline but when that bill will pass, if at all, remains unclear.
In the meantime, in response to the negative press, New York’s seven leading statewide education groups have decided to push back. The NYSSBA, SAANYS, NYSPTA, NYSCSS, and others have come together to endorse a five-point plan that they believe will help all students and their schools meet the expectations of the new Common Core learning standards.
They have released a position paper entitled “Common Ground on Common Core” outlining this plan.
