Commissioner John King and Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch are finally brining their Common Core tour to New York City.

Over the last six weeks, King, Tisch and other state education officials have made at least 14 stops to quell concerns about the new learning standards, which were aligned for the first time last year and resulted in significant test score drops. They are trying to make a case for why it’s important to move forward, despite widespread calls to revise those plans.

Today they posted details for three New York City meetings, which will take place over two days next week. Two other forums, in Staten Island and Queens, are “TBD.”
