Cuomo, teachers, disagree on evaluations

Jan 19, 2012 12:08 am
Governor Andrew Cuomo used his budget address on Tue., Jan. 17, to unveil a series of non-budget related proposals, including a five-year plan to take over increases in Medicaid from counties, a new pension tier including a 401(k)-style option and making additional school funding contingent on adopting a teacher evaluation system — threatening that a failure to do so would jeopardize federal funding. “The equation is simple at the end of the day. No evaluation, no money, period,” Cuomo said. Carl Korn, of the New York State teachers' union NYSUT, spoke to WGXC's on Monday about the teacher evaluation dispute. Korn said politicians are blaming the unions for holding up the process, even though the state is appealing a court decision that went the unions' way.
