NY making changes to Common Core

Education Common Core School

New York State is proposing changes to the controversial “Common Core” standards in schools.

But “Newsday” says the overhaul may mean little more than changing “Common Core’s” name and tweaking some wording.

Backers expect English Language Arts and Math requirements to pretty much stay the same.

New York state Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia says while standards will remain rigorous, the differences would be real.

She claims “it isn’t just tinkering around the edges.”

Regents are set to adopt final guidelines next year.
