VALATIE - A new Siena Poll shows 49 percent of New Yorker voters want the Common Core stopped.
On Tuesday, the fight against the curriculum became emotional at the Ichabon Crane Middle School.

In tears, a sixth grade English teacher tells the Ichabod Crane Board Of Education she doesn't want to hand her students the English Language Arts assessments in April.
I don't believe in knowingly setting my students up for failure. I cannot remain silent for one more day,” said Rickert.
