NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
BILL NUMBER: A3644 SPONSOR: Ra (MS)
TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to creating the commission on exceptional standards for New York state   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Creates commission to develop new educational standards for the state of New York and empowers the Board of Regents to create a new system to replace it   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 establishes the Commission on Exceptional Standards for New York State. This commission will study and recommend new education stan- dards to be implemented state-wide to replace the Common Core curric- ulum.   JUSTIFICATION: The recent report released by the Common Core Task Force underscores the need for a new comprehensive set of state-wide educational standards for New York. This commission will be composed of stakeholders from across the spectrum in order to create a student and local-district centric set of standards that will be adopted to replace the Common Core curriculum. The continuation of the flawed Common Core curriculum has gone on too long to the detriment of the students of New York and it is imperative that it be stopped and a new set of age and developmentally appropriate standards be developed and implemented.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2015-16: A9182- held for consideration in education   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Potentially none, depending on the necessary resources needed by the commission to carry out its duties.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
