NYPOST has an article about how Governor Cuomo wants to veto a bill that would give all access to teacher data and evaluations
ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo is taking a my-way-or-the-highway approach to limiting disclosure of teacher evaluations, although sources reported progress on an agreement yesterday.
Cuomo has sent word that he’ll veto any bill that diverges from his ultimate plan to try to limit disclosure to parents, according to a legislative source.
Cuomo and state teachers-union leaders are zeroing in on limiting parents to reviewing written evaluations of their own children’s current teachers at meetings with school principals, according to a source briefed on the talks.
The bill would set up a process for parents to review the evaluations but would prohibit them from taking notes during the meeting, according to the source. Parents would be able to see only current-year evaluations, the source said.
Cuomo also criticized efforts for wider disclosure.
“How come you’re only singling out teachers?” he said on Talk-1300 AM radio. “Where is the policeman’s evaluation? Where’s the fireman’s evaluation?”
