THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has called for a review of the Common Core program, which has faced heavy criticism in St. Lawrence County and the rest of the state. Locally a large percentage for students did not take the exams due because many parents disapprove of the program. The review panel will include education experts, teachers, parents, the education commissioner and legislative representatives.
Do you believe Common Core needs to be reformed?
Do you think the panel is the best approach to address the criticisms with Common Core?
Results will be posted Monday, Sept. 14.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain has cut services to local municipal courts after the Legislature voted against filling a vacant assistant district attorney (ADA) position in her office. Rain says ADAs will appear in local courts only for official hearings and trials
Legislature Chairman Joseph Lightfoot says Rain’s policy will cause problems for local town justices.
Do you think the policy change was warranted due to the staff reduction?
Do you think the policy will create a backlog for local court cases?
