The evaluations of 12,000 city teachers will be released, after a judge ruled today the city can make them public.
The decision came as part of a Freedom of Information Law request filed by news organizations, including NY1.
The teachers union sued to block the release, saying the methodology for determining the grades is flawed and could contain inaccurate records.
The city has argued the teachers have no right to privacy when it comes to information about their job performance.
A lawyer representing the news organizations says the public has a right to the information even if the teacher assessments are flawed.
The press is licking their lips to publish these and bludgeon teachers with them.
So what if they're flawed?
They get to make fun of teachers, call them lazy and stupid, and that's really the point, isn't it?
What kind of society do we live in where the primary criteria the press and the political establishment look to use regarding the release of teacher evaluations is not accuracy but disclosure?
Apparently the only thing that matters these days is "the public's right to know" - even when the facts are, you know, wrong.
