Silver: ‘The case has been made for a Common Core delay’
By Jessica Bakeman
ALBANY—Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver said Tuesday he expects the state Board of Regents to form a plan for improving and possibly delaying implementation of the rigorous Common Core curriculum standards.
Silver said he would wait to see what “remedial actions” the Regents come up with before attempting to intervene with legislation.
“I think the case has been made, if nothing else, for a delay and a reevaluation of the implementation of Common Core,” Silver said.
