An Albany panel is reporting that there are problems with Common Core with most of them centering on testing that critics have called stressful, too frequent and unfair. The panel recommends that students in pre-K through second grade shouldn't have to take standardized bubble tests as well as put a limit on the amount of class time teachers can spend prepping for tests. Another solution is to make sure students in grades 3-8 don't fail just because they did poorly on Common Core tests as well as end inappropriate testing for students with disabilities. It is also recommended that teachers be given more professional development on teaching the new material and get Common Core materials to teachers faster. The panel, which is made up of teachers, parents and lawmakers, want to appoint a group that is always assessing Common Core from here on out. Right now, the state Senate is deciding whether to vote on a bill that includes a few of the recommendations.
