StudentsFirstNY Acting Executive Director Glen Weiner Reacts to Voided Buffalo School District Teacher Evaluation 'Side Deal'

Today, StudentsFirstNY Acting Executive Director Glen Weiner released the following statement:

"Governor Cuomo and State Education Commissioner John King deserve high marks for standing up for our kids and successfully pressuring Buffalo School Superintendent Dr. Pamela Brown to void a highly questionable, secret side deal with the teachers’ union that threatened to significantly undermine their teacher evaluation system before it was even implemented.

"As New York City finalizes its own evaluation agreement, we implore our leaders to be just as vigilant and ensure that it too will be held to the highest standards so as to give our students the best chance at a quality education."
