Albany, N.Y. Jan. 23, 2019 — NYSUT President Andy Pallotta issued the following statement on the passage of legislation to fix the state’s broken teacher evaluation system:

“We applaud the Legislature for taking action to fix New York’s broken teacher evaluation system. After some lawmakers turned their backs on New York teachers at the end of the last legislative session, our members stood up, raised our voices and sent them packing. Now, we have consensus on the need to fix this system.

We look forward to making sure this bill is signed into law immediately, and we will continue to advocate for a meaningful assessment system for New York students that will measure student progress more accurately and address the concerns raised by teachers and parents alike.”
