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.

SENATOR CARL L. MARCELLINO STATEMENT ON COMMON CORE TESTING

With the new Common Core test scores being released, many School districts across Long Island have seen a significant drop in Student’s measured performance.

Before panic sets in, we must remember that the final scores of the 2013 tests are not the clearest method of evaluating the effectiveness of a teacher’s performance or a student’s achievement in the classroom. While New York State has joined with a coalition of 45 States in adopting the Common Core, we are the only state that tested using these new standards in 2013.  The other States will begin testing Common Core principles in 2014.  Perhaps this fact alone demonstrates that the NYS Education Department (NYSED)  may have moved too quickly.
