In Your Opinion: Write legislators to benefit students

Through the efforts of many, our governor has newly stated that testing for early grades will be suspended, and a forum of educators and legislators will take a look at Common Core standards.

We all know who the outstanding teachers and retirees are/were. Let’s use our commitment to our children to push for these individuals to participate in this forum. We know who make our children love school, want to know more, read more, ask questions, approach people with respect and serve our communities.

We know who motivated our kids to be leaders of today. Of all the people my children, grandchildren and current students have experienced or do experience, I know the exceptional educators, to include administrators.

Let’s get these geniuses in a process to define sound education at the New York state level. This should not be a popularity contest or a way for “shirt tailers” to gain accolades. Privately writing to our legislators may keep selection true to the task at hand.
