NY budget includes Common Core delay for students

Albany, N.Y. - (AP) Gov. Andrew Cuomo says parents and students can exhale knowing that the second round of Common-Core aligned test scores will not be included on student's permanent transcripts under the new budget deal.

The new standards in English and math designed to improve college and career readiness have been criticized by some parents who say that the roll-out was done too fast and from educators claiming that they weren't given sufficient material and guidance to teach the new standards.

Under the budget passed Monday night, scores on Common Core-aligned tests for students from third to eighth grade would remain off their transcripts through 2018 and school districts would be prevented from using the scores as the sole way for determining student placement.
