Niagara Gazette — But she sees a little bit of change — or relenting from NYSED — coming for districts concerning the emphasis on testing and what it means in districts, especially concerning Niagara Falls, citing a recent email she said was distributed to all school districts concerning the elimination of a math exam at the secondary level.

“I believe the Common Core is here to stay,” she said. “I believe testing to show student growth is here to stay. I just think it will be at a much more reasonable level that will be able to be accepted by the districts, principals, teachers, parents and students.”
