AKRON, NY (WKBW) - Members of the New York State Assembly Minority and Education Committee members held a public hearing at Akron High School Tuesday night to hear from the public on those controversial state test standards known as Common Core.

"These changes have been implemented swiftly and ferociously with little regard of how they truly impact children," said Scott Martzloff, Superintendent of Williamsville Central Schools.

Teacher Susan Dubill from Clarence Central Schools, who also has children there, said the new standards are too difficult for students and teachers.

"As I look around at the overworked and stressed teachers around me, I am sad to see what is happening in my profession," she said.
