Connections: Common Core Testing

Apr 2, 2014

Tracking what’s going on as Common Core testing starts locally this week. Helene Biandudi Hofer joins Evan to update the list of districts that have responded to her inquiries about how they handle students choosing to "opt out. “   Retired East Rochester Supt. Howard Maffucci also joins the discussion.

In the second half-hour, Evan is joined  by Colleen Richards, Headmaster of St. John Bosco. They’re a private religious school that is choosing not to use Common Core, unlike the Catholic diocese of Rochester.
