Sometimes you really do need to let a disaster-in-motion play itself out to its inevitable, disastrous, immolating conclusion.
Parents will rise up. Teachers will rise up. But, really, parents have learned the power of their voice and they will be heard, "comment period" or none.
I think the faster this thing gets shoved into place, the better.
The only thing better than a half-assed punitive evaluation system imposed upon the state without parent/teacher support is a half-assed punitive evaluation system imposed upon the state without parent/teacher support based upon an unrealistic and artificial deadline.
And remember, unlike the half-assed Common Core implementation, which Cuomo was able to blame the Regents and SED for, this APPR system is wholly his own.
He owns the system, he owns the deadline, he owns the problems.
