Common Core delay vote passes

Albany, N.Y. (AP) -- After nearly four hours of debate, the New York State Assembly passed a bill that would delay portions of the Common Core education standards.

The bill, sponsored by Democratic Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, would prevent schools from using Common Core-based test scores on staff evaluations for two years and prevent schools from using scores to decide whether a student will advance to the next grade.

The bill passed 117-10 Wednesday evening and was sent to the Senate, where it has no sponsor and its prospects are uncertain.

Early in the evening, Assembly Republicans tried to amend the legislation to establish a panel to decide whether to use the testing standards at all. They were defeated when lawmakers said it could jeopardize the state's federal Race to the Top grants.
