SENATOR MARTINS STATEMENT ON REGENTS REAPPOINTMENT VOTE

Thousands of concerned parents have contacted me to express their total frustration about the nightmarish common core implementation and the damage it has caused their children. Not a day goes by without hearing from one. I completely agree with all of them; a change is desperately needed.
