New York parents, especially in the politically powerful suburbs of Long Island and Westchester-Putnam, are outraged by the failure of the New York Board of Regents to take more decisive steps to fix the Common Core.

They want a thorough review of the standards by New York practitioners, and not those picked by CC-loving Commissioner John King. They want a true moratorium on the CC testing until the standards are made developmentally appropriate. Some want to eliminate them and use New York’s existing standards.

The consensus seems to be that the Regents tried to pull the wool over the eyes of the public, but parents were not fooled by half-measures.
