Cuomo Says No Delay To Teacher Evaluations

In the Daily News:

ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo on Thursday said he’s willing to adjust, not delay, the implementation of teacher evaluation systems throughout the state.

After the budget was enacted in late March, Cuomo said he believed there should be a delay in tying the results of the controversial Common Core education testing to teacher evaluation.

He said Thursday on public radio’s “The Capitol Pressroom” that he’s not in favor of a moratorium on evaluations.

“We can be in favor of an adjustment for a possibility that the (Common Core) test scores are not correct,” he said.

He said there are ongoing discussions to see if there is a way to decouple test scores and teacher evaluations.

Test scores can count toward as much as 20% of a teacher’s overall rating. “If we’re talking about 20%, why do we have to throw out the other 80?” Cuomo asked.

Because you developed the other 80% to go with the 20% in a forumla that supposedly spits out what a teacher's performance rating is.

Screw with part of the formula and isn't the whole rating system screwed?

Oh, well - these are just teachers we're talking about.

They're all going to be fired in a few years after tenure laws are declared unconstitutional here in New York anyway.

So who cares if the evaluation system is fair, just or effective?

  1. I'm a physical education teacher in the Bronx. I received my MOTP rating yesterday, which was 58 out of 60. The 58 number is obviously higher than the cutoff for "highly effective" so indeed, that's what I am. Unfortunately, I am linked with the social studies dept at my high school where the kids did not score very well. In fact, one global teacher told me there will be a significant decrease this June on the regents. There goes my "highly effective" and it's not fair. I don't even know these kids but I'm tied in to it. I feel like calling the Post because I'm a prime example of how teachers are getting screwed by this measure. It's not fair.

  2. And for teachers outside of NYC, doesn't 20% equal 100% after the 2nd year?

  4. Yes, needs to be a nice class action suit. Another suit by the ATRs new status in this contract, which, I been advised by a labor attorney, should be contested in court.
