Will Call For Delaying Common Core Matter?

Tools

New York state Senate and Assembly leaders are calling for a two-year delay in using Common Core-based tests, but will that call for delay mean anything?

The implementation of the new education initiative has been a hot button issue in New York. Many are calling the new policies badly implemented and the material too difficult for students.

Assembly member Addie Russell says she thinks there's enough support for the delay.
 
"I think that there's a very good chance," she said. "We've had a tremendous amount of grass roots support for this position and if we keep pushing on this for the next couple of weeks, I think we will be able to make progress.

Both Russell and Assemblyman Ken Blankenbush have made calls for changes to Common Core.
