Teachers, Advocates, Make Visible Statement Against Common Core

Rochester, NY -- Teachers statewide are wearing blue today in a show of solidarity. They're speaking up for more education funding and against the Common Core standards.

Tom Gillett is a state teachers' union official in Rochester and says the state needs to slow down its adoption of Common Core.He says teachers haven't been prepared and the materials haven't been vetted.

Gillett says the union is urging the state to move away from an emphasis on standardized tests -- especially in the early grades.
