NY to Delay Common Core Teacher Evaluations

06.20.14 | Bob Price

   New York legislative leaders and Governor Andrew Cuomo have finalized a deal to delay Common Core-related teacher evaluations. The bill essentially delays for two years common core test results from teacher evaluations, shielding them from the negative consequences of a poor review by these scores. The state board of Regents has faced extensive negative criticism for the roll-out of the new learning standards. Many argue the break-neck speed at which they were adopted gave districts too little time to implement the reforms. New York's largest teachers union says the deal ensures teachers are treated fairly.
