New York State Education Commissioner John B. King, Jr. and Senator John Flanagan joined the New York State Senate Education Committee meeting to speak to members on a variety of education issues such as the newly implemented Common Core Standards.
"I was thinking about this meeting and the context of the issues we are dealing with and I don't think it can be overstated the importance of the work that we do, not only as individual members, but the work that gets done in the area of education," said Flanagan. "We have an awesome responsibility and a daunting challenge…and that's shape the lives of boys and girls…who at the very least are college and career ready."
After a short speech, Flanagan opened the floor for comments. Check out the full video above.
