Spreading hate or sounding the alarm? A newspaper in Fulton County, New York is facing criticism from subscribers for publishing a series of front-page articles about the Ku Klux Klan's presence in the community.

New York State Education Commissioner John King Jr. told an audience of parents and teachers the state isn’t going to delay new Common Core learning reforms, but is open to "adjustments" going forward.

King spoke at forum in Albany, his first since an earlier series of planned appearances was cancelled after he was shouted down at a meeting in Poughkeepsie on Oct. 10.

For more than three hours, parents described how frustrated their children were over constant testing and inappropriate curriculum for their age.
