BUFFALO, NY (WKBW)- The New York State Board of Regents is making adjustments to the way the Common Core State Learning Standards are implemented in testing.

The decision is to not implement Common Core State Learning Standards in assessments for High School students until 2022.

Parents, who have been front and center of the Common Core controversy are relieved to hear the news.

“There wasn't enough planning,” said Cathy Wilde, parent of a Clarence student. “The teachers are having a hard time, the students are having a hard time...I think it was rushed.”

Bob Bennett from the New York State Education Board of Regents tells Eyewitness News that they are currently pushing Legislature for money to use for professional development. More Professional Development opportunities will help train teachers on how to better understand and teach to the Common Core State Learning Standards.
