Cuomo_Andrew-official-10Feb14ALBANY, NY — February 10, 2014 — "Today’s recommendations are another in a series of missteps by the Board of Regents that suggests the time has come to seriously reexamine its capacity and performance. These recommendations are simply too little, too late for our parents and students.

"Common Core is the right goal and direction as it is vital that we have a real set of standards for our students and a meaningful teacher evaluation system. However, Common Core’s implementation in New York has been flawed and mismanaged from the start.

"As far as today's recommendations are concerned, there is a difference between remedying the system for students and parents and using this situation as yet another excuse to stop the teacher evaluation process. 

"The Regents' response is to recommend delaying the teacher evaluation system and is yet another in a long series of roadblocks to a much needed evaluation system which the Regents had stalled putting in place for years.

"I have created a commission to thoroughly examine how we can address these issues. The commission has started its work and we should await their recommendations so that we can find a legislative solution this session to solve these problems."

  1. I’m such a radical that I think teachers should have some flexibility and the ability to use their own judgment. I mean, since they DO have Master’s Degrees in education and all that. And since they are called “teachers” of all things.
    If all a teacher does is baby sit, mark tests that somebody else wrote, and recite from a book somebody else chose, why the hell do we require Master’s Degrees? They’re professionals, and the state should treat them like professionals.

  2. Couldn’t agree more about the tyrant part but he thinks he is the best so he will definitely run again and besides he still hasn’t finished changing his father’s legacy. The first Coumo was the worst in NY state and little Andrew still hasn’t revised history enough to change that
