News New Yorkers divided on tough new education standards By DAN RIVOLI firstname.lastname@example.org @danrivoli Updated February 25, 2014 7:34 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email New Yorkers are split on the controversial education standards known as Common Core, according to a survey released yesterday. A Siena College poll said 36% of voters believed the standards are too demanding, while 24% felt they were not demanding enough and 23% said they right for students. Nonetheless, voters in the state were divided on whether students would be college or career ready after graduation. The survey said 46% were very or somewhat confident students would be prepared for life after high school, while 47% were "not very" or "at all" confident in Common Core's effect. Half of voters want a two-year delay in implementing Common Core. The results were similar to a previous survey conducted in November.
