ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York teacher who served on the panel created by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to look into Common Core standards says its recommendations are flawed.

East Aurora High School teacher Todd Hathaway released a prepared statement Tuesday that said the panel did not comprehensively examine Common Core’s failure to address student testing and teacher evaluation issues. Teachers unions have been among critics of the new standards’ rollout in New York.

The 11-member panel on Monday recommended banning standardized tests for the youngest students and capping the amount of instructional time that can be used for test prep.

Hathaway said that though the report was issued with his name attached, the Cuomo administration ignored his concerns.

Cuomo told public radio’s “Capitol Pressroom” Tuesday he never expected total consensus.
