Listening Sessions Called the Common Core Farce Sessions

Listening Sessions Called the Common Core Farce Sessions

The resistance to the Common Core State Standards – what was foisted upon New York in 2009 in a Race to the Top grant – is continuously being unraveled all around New York.  Parents are leading the resistance along with education activists and others.

Recently New Yorkers United for Kids sent a letter to Governor Cuomo asking him to address our concerns and issues. We will let you know when the Governor responds.

Out of the blue a Common Core Task Force was created to help take a look at – yes – you guessed it – the rollout of Common Core and to look at the Standards.

New Yorkers United for Kids has no confidence that these meetings will amount to any change.  We are confident that more activists will join the ranks of the test refusals and help get the refusal numbers over 500,000.

Go to the New York State Common Core Task Force website for details on the “Listening Sessions”.  You can speak for 3 minutes.

Events 11/9 in Vestal/Binghamton and 11/10 in Syracuse, Herkimer, and Lake Placid at 7pm.

Governor Cuomo has been talking about changing the name of the Common Core in New York.

Will that change anything?
