Albany N.Y.-A panel of education policy makers is set to make recommendations for smoothing implementation of the Common Core Learning Standards. 

Today,  the Board of Regents is expected to hear from a panel of Regents members who, after a series of volatile public hearings, was tasked with finding ways to get back on track.


The state Education Department's phase-in of the rigorous standards in New York schools has been criticized by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, legislative leaders, teachers and parents. In fact, critics say not all school districts were prepared for the curriculum changes and they've caused anxiety and frustration among students, parents and teachers.


The Common Core has been adopted by all but a handful of states as a uniform set of kindergarten-through-graduation benchmarks.
