Some New York State tests may be cut next year due to budget crisis
June 24, 2010

The New York State Education Department is considering eliminating some state testing next school year due to the state's looming fiscal problems and lack of a state budget. The State Board of Regents voted on June 22 to approve two sets of strategies to achieve cost reductions in the state assessment program. Part of that strategy includes eliminating the January, 2011 Regents exams, fifth- and eighth-grade social studies assessments as well as a variety of state exams in foreign language, math and science.
