New York makes more cuts to Regents exams

Faced with continued shortfalls in the Regents Examination Program, state education officials voted Tuesday to stop giving Regents exams in January, eliminate Italian, French and Spanish tests and make an additional $6 million in reductions. Getting rid of the Italian, French and Spanish tests will save $700,000. But it means there will be no foreign-language Regents exams available, said Jonathan Burman, a spokesman for the state Education Department.
