One Local Reaction To The Common Core Is Not So Warm
Fox 40 has reported on the Cuomo Administration's efforts to develop the Common Core standards in state schools.
Recently, we received a not so warm reaction from Dr. Marion Martinez , the Superintendent in Binghamton School district who writes,
“I am pleased the Governor is convening a committee (including practitioners) to review the common core standards, its implementation and the impact assessments have had on student learning and educator evaluations. Unfortunately, a flawed implementation has alienated many stakeholder groups. The overly aggressive implementation timelines established in the 'Race to the Top' grant were dictated and did not allow sufficient time to ensure understanding by all stakeholder groups.”
