QOD: NY Commissioner MaryEllen Elia on Common Core

From Politico:
The state Education Department will take suggestions on what portions of the Common Core standards should be changed, but the state “cannot go backwards,” Commissioner MaryEllen Elia told POLITICO New York on Thursday. “Our students need the skills and knowledge the higher standards demand to be successful after they graduate from high school. Change is always difficult, and change takes time, but this change is necessary.”
