BILL NUMBER:S6267

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to the
common core state standards initiative and the race to the top program

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this bill is to withdraw New York State from the common
core and race to the top programs.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the education law is amended by adding new section 115.

JUSTIFICATION:

The common core program and the race to the top program are having a
detrimental impact on our children, parents, teachers, administrators,
and our school budgets. These programs have shifted the emphasis away
from actual learning, and instead have focused purely on testing and
data collection.

The mandates that are required in order to comply with these programs
are causing a great amount of frustration and uncertainty in our
educational institutions. These programs have reduced the
instructional time allocated to our children's educational experience.

The cost of implementation far exceed the amounts received from these
programs and have become a financial burden upon our schools. These
one-size-fits-all programs have proven to be unsuccessful,
detrimental, and ineffective, and therefore the State of New York
should and must withdraw from these programs immediately.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
