State ed. official resigns after testing misfire

State Education Department Assistant Commissioner David Abrams resigned abruptly Tuesday, shortly after reports that the state pre-emptively released details on the spring math and English exams, according to the Daily News and The New York Times.

The state had to recall guidance documents on the tests, saying they were released before they were finalized. Educators also objected to some of the content, including a proposal for four hours of testing for elementary school students.

This wasn’t the first time this year that the state retracted information on the tests.
