The large and ever growing "opt out" movement has apparently scared Governor Cuomo enough that his hand-picked Common Core Task Force will recommend an up to four year moratorium on linking teacher evaluations to the Common Core tests. Moreover, many of the Common Core Task Force's other recommendations address the "opt out"movement complaints. They are as follows:
- A moratorium of up to four years to decouple the teacher evaluation system until a fairer and more transparent system is developed.
- A slower roll out of the revised Common Core standards and increased flexibility to allow educators to create curriculum aligned to student needs.
- Shorter, fairer, and more age appropriate tests will be developed and older tests will be made available to teachers as review material like Regents are presently.
