Teacher Evaluations to become Law

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Skelos, and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver today announced an agreement on legislation to put the Governor’s new groundbreaking teacher and principal evaluation system into law, firmly establishing New York as a national leader in school accountability.
