WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has called on the Garden State to scrap the controversial Common Core standards, despite supporting the national academic standards earlier in his career, according to NJ.com.
Christie said he reversed field after seeing the standards adopted and still failing. New Jersey was one of the early adopters of the Common Core standards, NJ.com reported.
With a neighboring Northeast state kicking the standards to the curb, is New York now on the clock to follow suit?
Leading educators in Westchester and Putnam County came together as an “unaffiliated team” in Harrison on Thursday to call for the “immediate suspension” of the adopted education reform that was included in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s most recent state budget.
