Thank you for your recent email. I appreciate and encourage your initiative and participation in the legislative process.
The Assembly Bill A.7994 was referred to the education committee in June of this year. This bill’s purpose is to withdraw New York State from the Common Core and Race to the Top programs. The mandates associated with these programs are causing undue stress on our educational institutions as well as our children’s educational experience. The costs of implementing the provisions of these programs have proven to be a financial burden placed upon our schools. Please be advised that I am a co-sponsor of this bill.
Here is the bill's page. It's sponsored by 25 GOP Senators,
