ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ New York's governor is asking state lawmakers to delay teacher evaluations based on the new Common Core curriculum to give educators and students more time to adjust to the new standards.
Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed legislation on Thursday that would postpone teacher reviews based on Common Core until the 2015-2016 school year. Teachers had complained that they weren't given enough time or guidance to teach the new standards, and worried they'd be unfairly evaluated for poor student test scores.
The Legislature voted earlier this year to keep scores on Common Core tests off student transcripts through 2018 in response to parents who criticized the standards.
Lawmakers are expected to take up Cuomo's proposal later in the day Thursday before adjourning their session.
