Educators Push to End the New York State Regents Exams

Many state educators are in favor of scrapping or at least modifying the state's Regents exams.

That's according to a new education report released at the Board of Regents meeting in Albany.

The report found over half of teachers are in favor of dropping the Regents exams to graduate, and a majority of respondents preferred performance-based assessments like PowerPoint presentations and research projects over traditional paper and pencil tests.

State education commissioner Betty Rosa noted the current one-size-fits-all approach is not equitably serving every child in the state.
