Common Core Standards Said to Require $56 Million for NYC Schools

Last week, the New York Times reported that it will cost New York City $56 million to purchase new textbooks and other materials to help public school students meet Common Core standards. City school officials say that the money will cover the costs of buying new English and math materials for students in third through the eighth grade. They said that this year, the city spent $13.3 million on materials and books for libraries. City officials say that the money would come from city taxpayers and a state fund that helps pay for textbooks.
