“Parents’ Bill of Rights”

Every parent has a fundamental right to protect their child’s personal data and to choose what information is available and to whom.  With that in mind, I was proud to support the creation of a “Parents’ Bill of Rights”.

As part of this year’s State Budget, the State Education Department (SED) was required to develop a "Parents' Bill of Rights" on the use and security of student data. The law was a direct result of strong parental opposition to the inBloom data cloud project.  In addition to requiring the Bill of Rights, the law also forced SED to eliminate the plan to participate in the inBloom project.

SENATE PASSES BILL TO PROHIBIT REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS FROM OPERATING A SCHOOL BUS OR PASSENGER BUS

New York State Senate today passed legislation (S1519), sponsored by Senator Carl L. Marcellino (R-Syosset), that would keep communities safer from sexual predators by prohibiting registered sex offenders from working as bus drivers.

“Registered sex offenders should not be operating a school bus or a passenger bus, plain and simple. Bus operators come in contact with vulnerable individuals every day.  To give a registered sex offender a license and access to potential victims is dangerous and makes zero sense. This legislation fixes the problem,” Senator Marcellino said.

STATEMENT ON BOARD OF REGENTS VOTE

Today, I voted against all the candidates who were nominated to fill the four open spots on the Board of Regents. My vote serves two purposes. First, was to express my outrage with the Common Core roll out. Second, to voice my opposition to the methodology of how Regents are nominated and elected in our State. Currently, each member of the combined legislature, a total of 213 representatives, get a vote, therefore by virtue of the numbers the selection is controlled by the majority in the state Assembly.

STATEMENT ON COMMON CORE REGENTS

On Thursday, January 23rd, the New York State Senate Education Committee met with State Education Commissioner John B. King, Jr. to discuss the flawed implementation of the Common Core curriculum and to find out what he was prepared to do to help students, parents and teachers.

During the meeting, I specifically asked the Commissioner about changes to Regents Exams to match Common Core standards.  I have serious concerns for our students who will be forced to take Common Core based Regents Exams without the proper preparation.  I asked the Commissioner to address this issue.

Common Core Advocacy

The State Education Department (SED) has mishandled the implementation of the new Common Core Learning Standards from the start, causing unnecessary anguish and discouragement to students, parents, and teachers in every school. The results, as expected, are lower than last year’s standardized tests scores.  That doesn’t mean the students and teachers failed; it means SED  failed them by moving too quickly and changing the criteria midstream.
