      Subject: Standing Up for Our Kids
      Senator Dean Skelos

      Voting No on Regents who imposed Common Core; Yes for our kids who deserve better









      Dear neighbor:

      On behalf of the thousands of frustrated parents, students and teachers that I represent, I've just voted against confirmation of the four Board of Regents candidates that were nominated by the State Assembly. 

      The roll-out of Common Core has been profoundly flawed, and the State Education Department and Board of Regents are responsible for this mess.

      Today's vote sends a loud and clear message that our students deserve better and that this bureaucratic disaster needs to be fixed.

      New York State must return its focus to one overriding goal: providing a quality education that helps every child achieve a bright, successful and rewarding future.
