New York's top education officials say they understand the firestorm of criticism over rolling out tough new education standards.

But state Education Commissioner John King and Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch say Tuesday they remain committed to Common Core. They say they look forward to working with Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Education officials on Monday recommended giving students additional time to meet more rigorous requirements, among other changes. Cuomo called the Regents' recommendation too little, too late and questioned the board's performance.

Tisch says much of the criticism of the board comes from frustration over a complicated, generational transformation. She says they're making adjustments, but sticking with their core principles.

Tisch says that as someone who has raised three children, she knows how to adjust and hold her ground.
