The new common core curriculum has made waves at school communities across the state. As YNN's Carmella Mataloni reports, the New York State Education Commissioner will be in Binghamton.
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The New York State Education Commissioner, Dr. John King, will answer questions Monday night at West Middle School in Binghamton regarding the new common core curriculum.
After the standards were adopted, many people across the state were not prepared for the change. Parents, teachers, and students have actively expressed their dislike with the new standards.
According to Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, it's important for Dr. King to hear these concerns.
"Compared to other countries we really aren't doing that well in Science, Math, English, so we want to keep kids in school," said Lupardo. "I'd rather focus on more constructive approaches to alleviate the stress and anxiety that everyone is feeling here, so I don't think it helps to keep kids out of school."
The forum is scheduled for 6 p.m. at West Middle School in Binghamton.
