New York teachers turn on Common Core

NY Teachers The board of the New York state teachers union this weekend unanimously withdrew its support for the Common Core standards as they have been implemented — a major blow for Common Core advocates who have been touting support from teachers as proof that the standards will succeed in classrooms nationwide.

The board also unanimously declared they had lost confidence in New York Education Commissioner John King Jr. and urged the state’s Board of Regents to remove him from office.

The move on Common Core put the New York State United Teachers at odds with the national teachers unions, which have steadfastly promoted the new academic standards for math and language arts instruction, now rolling out in classrooms nationwide.

Amid fierce and growing opposition to the standards — fanned by conservative political organizations — promoters of Common Core have counted on teachers to be their best ambassadors and to reassure parents and students that the guidelines will lead to more thoughtful, rigorous instruction.

Now, one of the biggest groups of educators in the country is on record saying it’s not working.

The NYSUT, which represents about 600,000 teachers, retired teachers and school professionals, is demanding “major course corrections” before it can consider supporting the standards again.
