UFT LOBBIES IN ALBANY SAYING NYC TEACHER EVALUATION SYSTEM "COULD BE A MODEL STATEWIDE"
This came to me from UFT materials that were taken up to Albany for Lobby Day today.
While statewide umbrella union NYSUT is at least talking a good game about repealing the NYS teacher evaluation law and sending teacher evaluation back to districts free from state mandates, the UFT is telling state lawmakers the teacher evaluation system in NYC could be a "model statewide."
Who is Michael Mulgrew kidding?
We have a petition to repeal the evaluation system we will be posting later. It is time to tell the Legislature, Governor and President Mulgrew how we feel about the teacher evaluation system.
Please don't tell me how the student growth scores saved your annual rating. The NYC DOE is discontinuing probationary teachers with effective ratings and bringing dismissal charges against tenured people who were never rated ineffective.
