Cuomo Assembles Panel to Review Common Core Tests


Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday assembled a panel of educators, lawmakers and parents to review the Common Core learning standards and the way schoolchildren are tested on them. Cuomo has been critical of the state’s rollout of the standards and earlier this month promised a review and changes. The 15-member Common Core Task Force’s agenda, he said, is “a total reboot” of the system. A report is expected by year’s end.
