Concern Over The Common Core In Corning

12.06.13 | Bob Price

Corning, New York hosted a common core hearing last night and the mood was anything but favorable toward the controversial learning standards.  The New York Assembly Republican conference sponsored the hearing at East High School which was attended by a couple hundred concerned parents, educators, and administrators throughout the southern tier.  Lawmakers are hosting a dozen of these question and answer sessions throughout New York and promise to take common core criticisms with them to Albany in January.  They say they will personally pressure the governor to make reforms to the learning standards...or else pass legislation to that effect.
