Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Common Core Task Force Report

“The report of Governor Cuomo’s Common Core Task Force, led by Partnership for New York City Board member and former Chairman Richard Parsons,  appropriately  focuses on maintaining the high standards necessary to prepare students for college and careers in a knowledge-driven economy. These recommendations will, among other things, elevate career and technical education in New York State by applying both rigorous academic assessments as well as expanding opportunities for students to earn meaningful credentials leading to employment or post-secondary education. This is a solid approach that responds to concerns of all stakeholders, including employers, and we look forward to working with the Governor and the State Department of Education on its implementation.”
