Dr. Alan Singer on Common Core Politics

Newsday

Dr. Alan Singer, Director, Secondary Education Social Studies, is quoted in this Newsday article about New York dropping Pearson Education for its school state exams and selecting a new vendor, Questar Assessments. He calls Pearson “one of the most aggressive companies seeking to profit from what they and others euphemistically call educational reform.” He adds that replacing Pearson with the lesser-known Questar leaves open wider issues involving these exams, raised in the recent “opt-out” movement.
