WOODBURY - There is a renewed call to opt out of another round of controversial Common Core tests.

Supporters of the opt-out movement on Long Island want parents to hold their kids out of tomorrow's state math tests.

Last week, 42 percent of students opted out of the state English Language Arts tests.

The Board of Regents says it was already planning on reviewing the Common Core standards even before the high numbers of refusals last week.
