Federal, state officials care little for parents' concerns
(Page 3 of 3)
Howard Schwxch

The state’s PTA has called for a one-year moratorium on both the roll-out and the testing programs to give schools a chance to catch up in both curriculum and material to address that curriculum. The association that represents Nassau County principals agrees.

They are right, as were the parents, superintendents, teachers and students who stood face to face with Tisch and King and told the two that they are wrong to continue the draconian program without taking a deep breath and without fixing the apparently broken program.

The proper approach to the Common Core would have been to give it at least a year for the teachers and the students to absorb the New World Order and then, test on it, not unleash the tests when neither the educations nor the children have been properly prepared.
