Parents and community members will have a chance to share their opinions on New York’s Common Core standards tonight. Binghamton University is hosting one of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s regional public forums.
The forum is the first presence in the Southern Tier for Cuomo’s Common Core task force. Cuomo created the task force in September, following a massive spring boycott of state tests. It launched just after State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia started her own effort to review the standards. Elia is also serving on the governor’s panel.
