Education and Common Core

Politics, classroom don't mix - Editorial by Assemblyman Ed Ra, Albany Times Union, January 11, 2016

"The protesters held signs opposing legislation passed Wednesday by the Assembly that would delay for two years a new system of teacher evaluations and elements of curricula tied to Common Core standards.

They support a bill sponsored by Assemb. Edward Ra (R-Franklin Square) and state Sen. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) that would put the standards on hold and establish a commission to examine them."
