LATHAM – The President of the New York State United Teachers said parents should expect their children to do worse on next month’s standardized tests.
“There’s going to be a test score and it’s going to be an inaccurate rating of your child’s ability,” said Richard Iannuzzi, of NYSUT.
The union launched a campaign with full page newspaper ads Thursday, saying that teachers haven’t had the time or materials under the new Common Core standards to get third through eighth graders ready in time.
