The New York state ballot is expected to see a new political party listed in November: the Stop Common Core Party.
The candidate will be Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino, who established “Stop Common Core” hoping to tap into the frustrations of parents and educators over the controversial school standards.
Astorino, the Westchester County executive, is challenging Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who irked some of his supporters in the New York state teachers unions for his support of Common Core State Standards, which supporters say presents higher standards but opponents say amounts to a national curriculum.
