Dr. Tisch was the person who supported the Governor on the new APPR law, yet now she says it there is not enough time to do it properly. Tisch has lost control of the Board of Regents and it is long past the time for her to resign the Chancellor's post. It is refreshing to see some Regents speaking out against Tisch - good job Regents Rosa, Cashin, Tilles, Young, Johnson, Ouderkirk, for not be intimidated by Dr. Tisch.
Indeed, something seems to be happening to Merryl Tisch.
Perhaps some pressure from around her?
Can you imagine a statement like this out of her mouth in years past?
Later, Tisch told reporters districts will inevitably get mixed messages about how to proceed, because many board members simply doesn’t want to implement the law as written.
“Districts are having reform fatigue,” she said. “I don’t find that superintendents don’t want to cooperate. That’s not it. I think they’re getting a lot of mixed messages from the field. So, for instance, we’re saying we’re going to put regulations in place. And then, in the same breath, we’re saying the day after those regulations are in place, we are going to work to develop a new system that has more validity and more reliability. What are districts supposed to do with that type of messaging?”
I'm not convinced we're still not getting lip service from members of the Board of Regents or the legislature when they make public statements criticizing the Cuomo APPR evaluation system.
I'm also not convinced Tisch has lost control of the board.
That said, it was extraordinary to see the open criticism of the Cuomo APPR law at the Regents/SED meeting.
Well see if it leads to anything.
