NYSUT Says Cancelling The January Regent Exams Is The Right Choice

December 22, 2021

New York State United Teachers issued the following statement today regarding the cancelation of the January Regents exams:

“Given the unevenness of this school year with the pandemic still ongoing and the acute social-emotional needs of our students, canceling the January Regents exams is the right choice. We thank Commissioner Rosa, Chancellor Young and the Board of Regents for recognizing that our educators are still assessing their students, preparing them to receive their diplomas and setting them up for success after graduation without this round of state exams.”
