StudentsFirstNY Executive Director Jenny Sedlis: PROSE School Announcement Fails to Address Core Issues

"Based on the vague talking points given for 3 out of 107 proposals, it does not appear that this program addresses core issues that are preventing schools from being as good as they can be. Schools still can't exit low performing teachers or attract and retain the best ones through innovative compensation models. 
 
"The lack of detail makes us wonder if this is just meant to distract us from the fact that the teachers' contract puts too many restrictions on how schools are run.  New Yorkers deserves greater details on all 107 proposals and how success will be measured across the 62 approved PROSE schools."
