SUNY Chancellor Touts Common Core

06.11.14 | Bob Price

Top education official Nancy Zimpher will head a group of 200 college and university leaders from 33 states. Together, they'll advocate for the tougher learning standards. State leaders have made modifications to the controversial program this year, after the new standards were installed last year, leading to widespread complaints from educators, parents, and students alike. Zimpher says that to scrap the Common Core would be a wasted opportunity.
