Assemblyman Edward Hennessey is joining the call to delay using Common Core test based assessments.

“The rush to implement the Common Core curriculum and the tests and evaluations associated with it have caused an overwhelming amount of concern, pressure and anxiety for our children, parents, teachers, and schools,” Assemblyman Hennessey said. “I too am extremely concerned.”

If true educational progress is to be made whereby children, educators and schools will become empowered and invigorated with the skills, knowledge and tools necessary to tackle the challenges of today, it must be made with the understanding that we are dealing with people, Hennessey noted.
