Common Core Recommendations Made By Panel

 
Common Core Recommendations Made By Panel
Posted Tuesday, March 11th 2014 @ 5am

(AP) Albany N.Y.- A panel created by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to look into New York's rollout of the controversial Common Core curriculum making some recommendations. 

The panel calling for capping the amount of instructional time that can be used for standardized tests and test prep. They also recommended that the state Legislature ban standardized "bubble tests" through second grade.

Cuomo assembled the panel last month amid widespread complaints by parents and teachers that New York rushed the rollout. Teachers argue they will be unfairly punished if students do poorly under the new assessments and others question whether the standards will really elevate student achievement.


The state's Board of Regents approved changes to implementing Common Core educational last month but backed off on a plan to delay a teacher evaluation measure.
