Last month in New York, the Common Core Learning Standards will leave some students behind because of the focus on passing tests and lack of direct education.
The working group of Board Regents (BR) state: “Educators whose jobs are threatened because of this year’s and last year’s test results should be able to raise as a defense a district’s failure to provide enough training or guidance on the standards.”
The BR will be releasing a report on CCLS which demands that a 3 year moratorium be placed on implementation of Common Core to properly evaluate the consequences of drastically shifting the focus of education from learning to effectively passing exams.
In 2022, students in high school would be required to pass CCLS exams or risk not graduating with a diploma.
