NYSSBA statement on revised state learning standards
FOR RELEASE: May 2, 2017
CONTACT: David Albert
We are encouraged by the State Education Department's more collaborative and inclusive process for the adoption of new learning standards for public schools, in contrast to the adoption of Common Core standards in 2011.
The department has consulted with school board members, parents, teachers, subject matter experts, and others in an attempt to craft age-appropriate standards and obtain buy-in from stakeholders.
We look forward to reviewing the standards and submitting comments on behalf of school board members.
