Albany/Rochester N.Y. (AP) _ State Education Commissioner John King Jr. is in Rochester today to talk about the new Common Core reforms at an Education Conference at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.

Last night he told an audience of parentsand teachers in Albnay the state is not going delay new Common Core learning reforms, but is open to ``adjustments'' going forward.

The forum in Albany , his first since an earlier series of planned appearances was cancelled after he was shouted down at a meeting in Poughkeepsie on Oct. 10.

Some critics have called for King's resignation, saying he's ignored their views as the state has adopted the national public education standards.

They say the demands on students and schools have been too extreme and done too quickly. The changes have included new curriculum and tougher standardized tests linked to teacher evaluations.
