English tests under new common core take place

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.—Statewide English tests under the new common core are taking place Wednesday.

This is the second day for testing, as thousands of parents have refused to let their child take them.

The tests will continue for one more day.

Groups compiling numbers from around the state claim that more than 25,000 of the 1 million third through eighth graders up for testing are skipping the exams.
