New York education chief outlines state budget request
from Education Week
New York's education commissioner asked lawmakers for a $2.4 billion increase in funding in the next state budget, including $45 million for teacher and principal development like that recommended by a task force convened by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Testifying before the state Legislature's finance committees in Albany, Commissioner MaryEllen Elia said none of 21 task force recommendations delivered to the governor in December were specifically funded in the executive budget proposed for next year. The task force was charged with reviewing the state's Common Core learning standards, curriculum and testing.
