Governor Andrew Cuomo's newly formed education panel is siding with critics of a plan to store student data with a third-party vendor.

The Common Core Implementation Panel released its first round of recommendations Monday, and in a surprising move, the panel said that the state should cut ties with inBloom, a nonprofit data storage organization.

Parents and advocates have said that inBloom would not keep data, including students' test scores and medical records, secure.

The state Department of Education has stood by the company and was preparing to begin storing data this summer.

The recommendation now goes to the governor.
