The North Country Alliance for Public Education recently hosted a forum on standardized tests on the Plattsburgh State campus to discuss the controversial Common Core requirements and the impact of testing on students, teachers and parents. The forum was held just days ahead of state education Commissioner John King’s visit to Plattsburgh tonight.
Common Core is a set of nationally developed standards adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia, designed to align grade level cirricula across the states. It was adopted in New York, in part, to secure Race to the Top federal education funding. On Wednesday evening, state Commissioner of Education John King was in Plattsburgh, accompanied by Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch, for a panel discussion on Common Core.
