>> hello. >> crisp and clean out there and bloody cold too. >> it is cold but we can deal with it. we're intrepid new yorkers, greg. >> new angle, that looks to be the lower man half tan region. there is the frank gary building we like in the middle. >> talk about what is happening in schools all across the state. schools 3 to eight are taking common core test. >> common core, very controversial, donald trump promised to get rid of it if he is president. leaving him aside, right here in new york citynew york state there is a debate, even though the test is given today, thousands of kids are not taking it, not only by some teachers
teresa priolo has more from -- >> ps 133. hello, tressa. >> reporter: good morning greg and rosanna, good morning, everyone. we'll see how many people decided not to show up for school and sit for exam or others who decided not to show up at all. a lot of parents didn't like results of these tests. they basically staged a resole and state had to stage them. shorter untimed, vetted by 22 educators across the state. when the school bell rings today that is the common core test your child will sit down to take. that is if he or she hasn't opted out. for years parents, teachers and students have complained about common core. they have said the test doesn't match grade level it assumes all students learn the same, and it disproportionately affects a teacher's performance. last year 240,000 children or about 20% of new york state
and of those that took the test, between 30 and 34% passed. the state had no choice but to revamp it and implement major changes that addressed these issues. the question is, will that be enough to get students to sit for the exam? common core is intended to set a national standard of aptitude from grades k through 12, students are assessed on english language, arts and malt skills to see if they meet the acceptable standard or if they're college or career ready. new york is one of 42 states plus the district of columbia to adopt common core. while students have a legal right to opt out here in new york, the state must administer the tests in order to be eligible for a piece of a 696 million-dollar federal education grant. now there are different ways out. not only here in new york but also across the country in places like seattle where entire 11th grade decided to show up to school but forgo the test.
stare at the teacher. they don't write one answer down. therefore they can't fail it. that is the latest from brooklyn, greg and rosanna. back to both of you. >> we have two experts who weigh in on the issue. we have the president of democrats for education reform. he is pro-common core. he thinks kids should take the test today. also lisa ruddily from as link, new york. allies for public education. she has a little boy sitting there who wouldn't take the test. >> okay. what's the problem with common core testing? you go first. >> we don't see a problem. we believe it is critical for our young people to be prepared for global economy. we're out to compete with not only ,ids in new york and but throughout this country and throughout this world. if we don't have good data how the young people are performing we don't even know if they are ready for the economy let alone without information teachers can use toe improve their practice.
critical, particularly young children of color and low income families who often behind the curve and without that information we wouldn't know that. >> lisa, why is your kid not taking the test today. >> well the common core standards have not been research-based, they have not been vetted. the state tests that we have are not diagnostic. we do not get information as he has shared. we do not get information on the tests. they're not -- >> you're not going to know the results of the tests? >> we'll not know the results. even when we know the results there is score of one, two, three, and four. 70% of the children were deemed non-proficient or failed. >> let me ask you something, when you take regents or s.a.t.s you don't get back to see what you did wrong? >> well that is different story. these tests are not iced to drive instruction in our classrooms. we're told this data will be iced improve instruction. we know it hasn't and we have seven days, six days of testing. >> one of the reasons why the common core test has a bad rap
based on the results and that in some people's eyes put a heck of a lot of pressure on teachers an students and they were just teaching to the test. >> we don't support just teaching to the test nor do we support an overwrought focus on educators. entire school community and leadership at a is responsible for making sure our young people and parents as well. at same time if young people are not learning, if reasonable assessments show young people are not prepared for global economy there has to be some response. >> wasn't it a big mistake to link teach every performance evaluations and pay to the results of this test which was the case i think up until last year? >> well until they really have been validated to be aligned with student achievement that can be a problem but we do believe that should be part of the valuation. shouldn't be entire part. if in fact young people are not learning that has to be part of how we evaluate -- >> you have a problem with that? >> yeah, our teachers know exactly where our kids are and linking teacher valuations to test scores is invalid.
valid. >> that is not true. that is not true at all. >> thousands of kids graduate our schools, it is documented we all know about it, they can't read or write. they can't even get themselves together for a cuny school. >> without the assessments our schools become a black holt. our babies go in and don't know whether they come out for global economy. without good assessment data we don't know they're learning. >> what we do know is that the achievement gap has not been closing since no child left behind. >> that is not true. >> we know common core test something that actually last three years the gap has been widening especially for people of color. and i think that, until the equity, until the playing field is fair, where there are small classrooms across all schools -- >> that is, where are they going to get small classrooms? they're overcrowded as it is. what buildings will they use? >> interventions we need this school there can be live debate
there shouldn't be debate you need information in the first place to know whether the kids are learning and which kids are not. >> lisa we heard from the schools chancellor, said look we made changes. number one, no time limit on this test. you can take all day. number two, teacher valuations are not linked to result of today's and this week's testing. is that a step in the right direction? how do you feel about those modifications? >> well i feel very happy that the state tests are not linked to teacher valuations. there are the local tests that are still linked to teacher valuations but in terms of the tests being shorter, there are still six days of testing that is going to happen in new york. >> right. they dumped a lot of questions. >> they didn't dump a lot of questions. one passage and a couple of multiple choice questions. >> we got a lot of reaction on our facebook. read two things. amber says the common core is not just a set of standards. in order for the standards to be achieved children must adhere to all the books and materials. it curriculum. lizette says i'm old school.
there is no opting out. real world is tough. are you going to opt out of that? >> common core are set of standards. states and districts have flexibility what curriculum means they use to achieve standards. second participant is accurate. we have a participation trophy culture. take the test whenever you want to be finished you want to be finished. these kids have to compete in global economy with young people all over the planet. the idea we have black box for schools makes no sense. cripples our people. >> lisa, tells me you're no push over or testing when it comes to education for your kids. address that. this is new age thing, letting kids skip the tests. being too easy on the kids. i don't think that is where you're coming from. >> as a parent i want my child to be challenged. i want a strong quality education. common core in fact it has been driving instruction. we have narrowed cure lick rum. we are not getting best of education topics in our classrooms. the statistics show that, you
and by having a test and punish culture we're not improving and education. in fact i get emails all the time, i have charter school parents saying i want to opt out of the test as well as public school parents. >> we have to leave it there. lisa ruddily, founder of new york allies for public education. what is your website. >> www.nyscape.org. >> jeffries, presidents of education reform. how can people reach you. >> www..fer.org. >> we can leave off the www. >> thank you so much for your perspectives. hopeful you found that interesting and beneficial for your kids. all right, that's that. "good day" will take a quick little break. you around i will go out and duke it out over there. >> and discuss. mine would be a great adventure right now.
>> very exciting day in a few hours. the yankees take to the field. i believe, i'm going to predict they will whip the astros. i think they send the astros home with tears in their eye. >> tell me about the starting lineup of the astros? >> i have no idea. >> how about the yankees for that matter? rosanna, i'm with you. i don't follow baseball like i used to. i don't know what it is. the game got longer. i don't know if i left the game or the game left me but it feels different. we want a successful home opener. >> talk about hbo. they're stirring up controversy with a new documentary about the life of artist robert mapplethorpe. >> robert mapplethorpe we lost him in 1989, aides related illness. >> he was only 42. >> controversial and his artwork was quite provocative t offended some people. his life with the controversy
new documentary which debuted last night on hbo. watch in on demand throughout the month. >> good. i would like to see that. godfathers of rock and roll, the "rolling stone" don't like to move. they finish ad tour of latin america. they are working on new album. ronnie woods said the band is back in the studio. they're working on new songs. >> we need new video. this is from 1981 i believe. >> that is old one. the ban started in six at this two. new recording could be out this year. --' 62. >> to be admired. they were in cuba. what else? >> back street boys are back and headed to sin city. >> i don't know.
