The Common Core Task Force is a diverse and highly qualified group of education officials, teachers, parents, and state representatives convened by former Governor Cuomo to perform a comprehensive review of learning standards, instructional guidance and curricula, and tests to improve implementation and reduce testing anxiety.
The Task Force will complete its review and deliver its final recommendations by the end of this year.
The State's learning standards must be strong, sensible and fair, and parents and teachers should be able to have faith in those standards. The Common Core Task Force will work toward this goal to ensure that we deliver the best possible education to our children.
