A new report says that New York’s new standards could look a lot like Common Core.

And in other news, water is wet.

From The Post-Star:

If New York moves away from the Common Core standards, the state could end up with new standards very much like the ones it abandoned, according to a report by the New York State School Boards Association…

….The New York State Education Department is in the process of reviewing feedback from a survey of more than 15,000 about the Common Core standards. The report quotes Patte Barth, director of the National School boards Association’s Center for Public Education, who concluded that the new standards will also be similar to the Common Core.

“People were upset with Common Core because it happened without much, if any, public discussion,” she said. “People did not feel they had buy-in with the process. With a public review of the standards, states are now having that discussion. Even if standards remain substantially the same, stakeholders will at least know they had a role in them.”

LOL, yes so much better if we end up with the same crap sandwich knowing we had a “say.” Do these people actually believe what they are saying? Considering that New York is using Common Core as a starting point for their new standards none of this is surprising.
