‘Regents Review’ Returns to Aid Students Preparing for State Exams

Regents Review 2.0 prepares learners for the New York State Regents exams.
For each Regents exam there is a one-hour long exam review video. Some of the videos are also broken into shorter clips for those looking for help with a particular topic. The teachers involved in creating these videos formulated lists of recommended online resources for further study – check them out! The video programs are also broadcast by all New York State public television stations – including WSKG. The schedule of air dates for WSKG TV is listed below.

Testing, Opting-Out and Parental Engagement

The Connect New York series explores statewide issues of critical importance with monthly, one-hour panel discussions about education issues including: Common Core standards, teacher evaluation, school financing, achievement gaps, testing and opting out, and legal challenges. This episode focuses on testing, opting out and parental engagement in New York’s schools. We visit a school in the Elmira Heights School District and speak with its superintendent as well as teachers and parents. The program will focus on the response by the families of 240,000 New York students who opted out of the state administered exams in 2015 and the recently announced changes by the state and federal education departments. Susan Arbetter, host of “The Capitol Pressroom” serves as show host, and moderates a panel conversation with NYS Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia.
