Poll Finds New Yorkers Believe Roll-out of Common Core was Rushed
A majority of upstate New Yorkers believe the state's rollout of new Common Core education standards has been rushed, leading to widespread confusion, a poll released Sunday showed.
 
The Times Union/Siena Research Institute found that 82 percent of those polled agreed the rollout was rushed while 14 percent disagreed.
 
Don Levy, Director of the research institute, said the results show state officials haven't yet sold the public on the concept or timetable of the new standards.
 
The Common Core, adopted in more than 40 states, provides standards in Math and English that students are supposed to acquire in order to be ready for college and careers. The federal government and business groups encouraged states to adopt Common Core.
