FOR RELEASE: September 28, 2015                          

“I am honored to bring the voice of school board members throughout the state to Governor Cuomo’s Task Force on the Common Core Learning Standards. Our students need high educational standards, but the roll out of the Common Core in New York State has been plagued by too rapid an implementation and an overreliance on testing. By bringing all of the stakeholders and decision makers together, the governor’s task force has the potential to be a game-changer in the now five-year debate over the Common Core.  I intend to work closely with the governor and task force members to put more decision-making back into the hands of local officials and restore faith in our system of public education.”
