Education officials are releasing proposed changes to the controversial Common Core testing throughout New York.

The New York State Education Department made the revisions to the standardized math and English exams this morning.

Commissioner Mary Ellen Elia says two committees made up of more than 130 educators and parents recommended changing 60 percent of the English and 55 percent of the math standards.

They will be available for public feedback through November 4th.

For the past few years, parents and teachers have criticized the tests because of the time limits and because they claim too much time is invested in teaching for the test, rather than for school subjects.

Many students in grades three through eight have opted out of the exams as a result.
