From Gannett’s Ashley Hupfl:
Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro called for a delay in implementing the Common Core in an open letter to State Education Commissioner John King on Friday.
In the letter, Molinaro wrote, “After careful consideration and a lot of listening, I have come to the conclusion that the State Education Department must fully reconsider Common Core standards. Too many aspects are being implemented without the necessary public dialogue, involvement of all appropriate stakeholders and investment from parents and students.”
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday said he supported Common Core standards, but also said there’s an opportunity to examine the concerns.
“It has really raised concerns all across the board, and those are concerns that we are looking at, and I think we will be discussing this legislative session,” Cuomo said on Friday during “The Capitol Pressroom,” a public radio show.
