New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Common Core Task Force has scheduled 12 public meetings around the state as it looks to fix problems with the higher learning standards and student testing.
The first meeting, in New Rochelle, is set for Thursday.
The governor's office says five speakers with different viewpoints will address the task force and then answer questions from the panel.
The task force also plans regional sessions to hear testimony from the general public.
Cuomo wants the panel to make recommendations by the end of the year.
The state adopted the Common Core learning standards with the goal of improving college readiness. But critics say implementation was flawed and that the state too quickly linked them to student testing and teacher evaluations.
