The group Educators 4 Excellence put out a television ad today that calls on state leaders to end the impasse over a teacher-evaluation system.
The group said New York City is losing $250 million in state aid for schools because of the stalemate. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has vowed to implement his own evaluation system on the schools, but the system hasn’t been put into place.
“With no local deal in sight, the time has come for our leaders in Albany to step in and implement a real and meaningful evaluation system that will give teachers the critical feedback and support they need to help their students grow,” said Jonathan Schleifer, the group’s executive director, said in a statement.
New York City was one of a few districts in the state to not complete its evaluation.
