The implementation of Common Core State Standards is a concern for some advocates and parents of students who receive special-education services in New York City. Their concerns include questions about whether the new standards will make it more difficult for students with disabilities to graduate from high school, and whether new textbooks and other materials will be sufficiently accessible for students with disabilities. Corinne Rello-Anselmi, the city's deputy chancellor for students with disabilities and English-language learners, said the changes will require more planning and collaboration among teachers.
