NYS Legislation on Education

This page outlines as many pieces of proposed NY State legislation that I could find. Please use the comments area to let me know of others. Here’s the link to the Education Committee list of open legislation.

Update June 13, 2013:  It’s official. I do believe NYS Assemblyman Al Graf @AlGrafNY is the first politician in NYS to attempt to withdraw NY from Common Core & RtTT.
