The New York Daily News blog reports on StudentsFirstNY's recent poll that found that 80% of NYC voters support a new teacher evaluation system based on both classroom observations and test scores.
The results of the poll come in the final weeks of negotiations between the City's teachers' union and Department of Education. The article notes:
If the city and teachers union do not reach a deal to overhaul teacher evaluations by a January deadline set by Gov. Cuomo, the city could lose up to $300 million in state funding for the public schools.
